We are given a transformer with the following parameters,

• $V_p= 117\;\mathrm{V}$: is the voltage applied on the primary coil of the transformer.

• $V_s= 13500\;\mathrm{V}$: is the voltage produced on the secondary coil of the transformer.

• $N_p= 172\;\mathrm{turns}$: is the number of turns of the primary coil.

We are required to calculate the number of turns of the secondary coil $N_s$.
