Question 254

When going from 12 volts to 240 volts, is the point that with higher voltage the power transfer proceeds with fewer particles?
Yes. If you use higher voltages, you can transfer the same amount of power with a small current of charged particles. The energy lost in the transmission through wires increases as the square of the amount of current through those wires so reducing that current is very important.
