2. A toaster is supplied with 227 J of energy and produces 59.02 J of heat energy. Calculate the efficiency of the toaster.

3. A light bulb produces 13.68 J of light energy when it is supplied with 38 J. Calculate the percentage efficiency of the light bulb.

4. A kettle produces 57.75 J of heat energy when it is supplied with 165 J. Calculate the efficiency of the kettle.

5. An electric heater is supplied with 370 J of energy and produces 25.9 J of heat energy. Calculate the efficiency of the heater.

Stage 2

6. A light bulb is supplied with 89 J and is 36% efficient. Calculate the useful energy output by the light bulb.

7. A kettle outputs 270 J of useful energy. The kettle has an efficiency of 0.54. Calculate the total energy supplied to the kettle.
