Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to keep in mind that mA represents milliamperes, or one thousandth of an Ampere. Does that help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isnt that ohms law? 2.66 mA is (2.66 X 10^3 A), so just multiply that by the 5.92V and do dimensional analysis to convert the units. One volt is W/A and watts are J/s. If you multiply an ampere times a volt, the ampere will cancel and leave you with watts.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0agh, maybe not ohms law, sorry it was my first thought and i just didnt edit it out when i worked it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply the numbers then the units will follow. W/A * A makes the A go away. All you have left is W.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so convert 2.66 mA to .00266a right? or no? and multiple that by 5.92 which would be .0157472?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0move the decimal point 3 places, so 2.66 milliAmperes is equal to 0.00266 Amperes.
