    The answer is $22096,40

    Explanation:

    The annual interest expense is calculated: Nominal Value * yield rate*carrying value/nominal value. Because this note is paid semiannually, the formula is Nominal value * yield rate/2, where nominal value is equal to the face value ($500,000), and the yield rate = 9%. Because the carrying value is less than the nominal value, the cost for the company is less than the nominal expense.

    So, the interest expense is $500,000 * 0.09/2 * 491,031.19/500,000 = 22,096,40
