Question: Estimate the monthly cost of 1 Ton AC that runs for 3 hours daily, If the bill is charged at \$0.05/kWh

Answer: 1 ton ac = 1200 watt = 1.2 kW

kWh For 3 hours daily = 3 * 1.2 kWh = 3.6 kWh

At rate of \$0.05/kWh bill becomes = 3.6 kW * \$0.05/kWh = \$0.18

Question: Estimate the running cost of 1.5 Ton AC for 5 hours daily @ rate \$0.1/kWh

Answer: 1.5 Ton ac = 1800 watt = 1.8 kW

kWH for 5 hours = 5 * 1.8 kWh = 9 kWh

At rate of \$0.1/kWh bill is = 9 kWh * \$0.1/kWh = \$0.9

Question: Estimate the running cost of 2 Ton AC for 3 hours daily when @ rate \$0.2/kWh.

Answer: 2 Ton ac = 2400 watt = 2.4 kW

kWh for 3 hours = 3 * 2.4 kWh = 7.2 kWh

At rate of \$0.2/kWh = 7.2 kWh *\$0.2/kWh = \$1.44
