Super Bowl Power Usage

Sign in to follow this  


Well the Super Bowl was last weekend and seeing as we are doing Electricity and magnetism now, it got me thinking about how much electricity is used during the super bowl. So I looked around a bit and found out that the TVs used by the people watching the game use 11,309,607 kWh, which is 4.07 * 10^13 J. Now that is enough energy to get a 648919 kg object to escape velocity of 11200 m/s . And that is just the viewers living in the United States so it could be much more. Just think of what all that energy could be used for.
