HW Question Swanton Company purchased a new machine at a cost of \$120000. The estimated salvage value is \$12000. The machine is expected to be used for 10000 working hours during its five years. Compute and record the depreciation using straight line, unit of activity and declining-balance methods. HW Answer Section 1) Depreciation = Straight-Line Method 120000-12000 5 Entry Recording Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Year 2 Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Year 3 Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Year 4 Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Year 5 Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Section 2) Units-of-Activity Method 21600 21600 21600 21600 21600 21600 21600 21600 = 21600

Assuming that expected hours were: Year 1 2000, Year 2 3000, Year 3 4000, Year 4 5000, and Year 5 6000; we calculate it below: Depreciation = 120000-12000 10000 = 10.8
