Volts vs. watts vs, amps?

Answer Wattage = Volts times Amps (W = E x I). - BUT -If the load is reactive (either capacitive or inductive), you must multiply voltage times amperage times power-factor (W = E x I x PF).In an A.C. (Alt... Read More »

Top Q&A For: Volts vs. watts vs, amps

What is the best combo of volts to amps to kill pernicious weeds like thistles with a cattle prod type device as a 50k taser doesn't work due to ultra low amps?

Volts and amps are linked by a mathematical principle known as Ohm's law. Ohm's law states that V=IR where V is voltage, I is current (amps) and R is resistance. In general, biological systems are ... Read More »

How many watts in 115 volts?

Watts and Volts are two distinct types of measurement.

How many watts are in 120 volts?

Power equals volts times amperes. So you have to look at your fuse, e.g. 30 amps and calculate: 120 volts times 30 amps equals 3600 watts.Scroll down to related links and look at "Calculator"

How to Calculate Wattage From Volts and Amps?

Wattage, voltage and current -- or amps -- are all closely related. Watts are a measurement of power, which is realized by the combination of a device's potential to do work, measured in volts, and... Read More »
