    Need help with this question, why? because a wasp was flying around and i got too scared to concentrate... MUCH APPRECIATED FOR HELP

    1. A new house is fitted with all the latest energy efficiency measures. An energy surveyor checks a new house and finds that each second a house is losing 125W of heat through it’s roof. The heaters in the house are producing around 800W of heat. How efficient are energy efficient measures?

    Key word there is "was" so now it's gone. You may concentrate. Good luck.

    ((EnergyInput - WastedEnergyOutput)/EnergyInput)*100
    Might be wrong, haven't done efficiency in a while.

    You're right; surely by your username you're studying A Level Physics?

    Forget that it is losing that much every second
    Use this : (useful energy output/useful energy input) then multiply by 100
    Apparently my year were the last to be provided with a formulae sheet in the exam so you'll have to learn all of them off by heart. This is quite easy so just get it in your head. Also notice I haven't given you the answer but I hope giving you the formula has cleared things up for you

    Good observation Just a bit rusty on the basics atm, efficiency was in AS but I've pretty much forgotten all of AS over the summer & the question seems a bit weirdly worded.
