How do you calculate the energy rating of an appliance?

The energy rating of an appliance tells you how efficient it is. You may see stickers that have a tower of letters with the more efficient ones labeled A, A+, and less efficient ones as C or D. They tell you how much of the energy you supply is used usefully. For example, you may supply a kettle with 100J of energy of which 15J is used to heat up the water. The other 85J may be used as sound or for heating the surroundings in other words wasted. Another kettle might also be supplied 100J from which it might use 90J to heat up the water. As you can see the latter uses the energy more efficiently and so will have a higher energy rating. Energy rating can also be thought of as power since power tells you the rate of energy transfer.

You can use this formula to estimate an appliance's energy use: (Wattage × Hours Used Per Day) ÷ 1000 = Daily Kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumption 1 kilowatt (kW) = 1,000 Watts Multiply this by the number of days you use the appliance during the year for the annual consumption. You can then calculate the annual cost to run an appliance by multiplying the kWh per year by your local utility's rate per kWh consumed.

Second year dental student, happy to help :)

Hi, my name is Abdur and I’m currently studying Dentistry at the University of Bristol. I’d describe myself as a kind and friendly person who loves to teach using evidence-based techniques. As a dental student, a lot of my time is spent learning but also teaching others as it reinforces the knowledge I’ve gained from lectures, seminars and clinical sessions. I’d describing my style of teaching as interactive and personal as everyone has their own way of grasping topics. What sets my teaching apart from others is that it integrates core topics and links the common themes which cements the information to a deeper level of understanding. This is something I’ve used in my own studies which has helped me to ranked in the top 10 for the end of Year 1 exams and over achieve over 70% in end of Year 2 exams. I have been tutoring and mentoring students since 2016. What I’ve learnt from this experience is that building confidence in students is one of the key components to boosting grades. I highlight strengths and weaknesses so we can reinforce the areas which require more attention. This is through evidence-based teaching called active recall. The purpose of this method is to stimulate the mind through questioning rather than passive learning. Passive learning is something many students are guilty of which often leads to average grades. Through active learning it highlights areas that requires more attention. Spaced repetition will help to prevent forgetting important information and enables long term storage of knowledge which is crucial for exams!
