Question

# Determine whether the following statement describes a step-up transformer or a step-down transformer: The primary coil has 7,000 turns, and the secondary coil has 500 turns.

Solution

Verified

Step down transformers generates lower output power than their initial input power because of the higher number of turns in the primary coil compared to the secondary coil. That means that a primary coil with a $7000$ turns and a secondary coil with a $500$ turns can be considered as a $\textbf{step-down}$ transformer.
