Work out the resistance of 1.0 km of the cable by treating the wires making up the cable as resistances in parallel

do P=V2/R

So do 75^2/(1.1/6)

That's just the 6 aluminium wires... the steel wire should also be included

So its 75^2/(1.1/6)+3.3?

should be getting 752/0.17 for 33kW

How did you get 0.17 on the bottom?

1/R=1/R1+1/R2...
so
R=1/(1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/3.3)
or
R=1/(6*(1/1.1)+1/3.3)

1/R=1/R1+1/R2...
so
R=1/(1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/1.1+1/3.3)
or
R=1/(6*(1/1.1)+1/3.3)
Okay thanks i understand it
