How much electrical power does your brain use?
Your brain uses as much power as a ten watt battery.

Answer This question makes no sense. Please clarify and check yourterminology. With 15 HP of power it would be worth having a capacitor bank tocorrect the power factor if: …(i) your load contains a large percentage of appliances with a poorpower factor e.g. induction motors and (ii) your power company is loading the charge for your kWh usagebecause of your poor power factor. If those two items don't apply to you, it isn't worth it.
10-12 watts, enough to power a flashlight
Hydro power is using the power of water (dams, rivers, oceans) to generate electricity. The uses of electricity are everywhere, powering factories, offices, homes, kitchens… and living rooms.. To produce electricity.
It has 5 watts.
Neurons do use electricity to communicate. When a neuron communicates, the usual sequence of events is: 1) binding of neurotransmitters to receptors on the cell body (soma) or… dendritic tree; 2) depending on the ligand/receptor in question, the membrane may become more or less permeable to certain ions (such as sodium, potassium, chloride etc), which changes the electrical potential difference across the cell membrane; 3) if the potential difference increases enough, then the cell will 'fire'; sending an 'action potential' (i.e., self-propagating electrical current across the membrane) from its axon hillock all the down to it's synaptic terminal, where it will then release it's neurotransmitters - and the process starts all over over again for recipient cells.
i think around 480 or so.
In September 1882 Edison began to supply 110v DC to about 50 consumers in Lower Manhattan NY, and it grew rapidly in the years following.
About 10-12 watts, so not much. But to use that power would leave next to none to run your body, lol. So in my opinion, unless there is a way to slowly exercise the brain, to …slowly compensate and replace the energy you are trying to harness then it would be a pointless battle. But on the other hand our body generates a lot of thermal, and kinetic energy, which could if done right be upscaled to power lots of awesome things. Andrew R - AKA Extile
Nerve cell signaling is an electro-chemical event. Thus, 'electricity' is used during cell-to-cell communication.
Yes. The discipline is called electroconvulsive therapy , and (under proper medical supervision) can be used to treat mental disorders such as major depression, bipolar disor…der, and schizophrenia.. The layman's term for it is electroshock therapy , but many practitioners avoid that term, considering it somewhat derogatory.
The cooker gives its power rating at 2.3 Kw, which appears similar to other kitchen appliances.
Watch LESS tv and STOP using calculators. USE YOUR BRAIN FOR MORE THINGS RATHER THAN LOOKING THEM UP LIKE YOU ARE NOW!
It depends on the capacity of the battery pack the measurement is measured in kilowatts per hour just like how you would receive from the electric companies. . Additional a…nswer . If you think about it, the question is much like one that said 'how many gallons would a petrol car need at a refill?' How big is the tank and how empty is it when the refill starts? .
About only 10% Though an alluring idea, the "10 percent myth" is so wrong it is almost laughable, says neurologist Barry Gordon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltim…ore. Although there's no definitive culprit to pin the blame on for starting this legend, the notion has been linked to the American psychologist and author William James, who argued in The Energies of Men that "We are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources." It's also been associated with to Albert Einstein, who supposedly used it to explain his cosmic towering intellect. The myth's durability, Gordon says, stems from people's conceptions about their own brains: they see their own shortcomings as evidence of the existence of untapped gray matter. This is a false assumption. What is correct, however, is that at certain moments in anyone's life, such as when we are simply at rest and thinking, we may be using only 10 percent of our brains. "It turns out though, that we use virtually every part of the brain, and that [most of] the brain is active almost all the time," Gordon adds. "Let's put it this way: the brain represents three percent of the body's weight and uses 20 percent of the body's energy."
In Hydro Power
In the same way any other source of electricity is used. It is usually fed into the grid to feed the electrical needs of homes and industry.
