Step 1

As given that machine have rating of 240 volt and 23 amp.

Therefore, power generated by machine=V×I

Power =240×23 W

Power =5520 W

Hence, Equal amount of power and current is  flowing through conductors.

Assume that the conductor material is copper

Formula for resistance is help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseR = Р hence, 232 Ω R = 5520 R 0.09 And pl R A "p = 0.0171 Ohm mm2 / m fullscreen
Step 2

Assume length of wire is 1000 mm

Therefore, plugging...
