The simplest conversion formula to convert watts to amps is based on the formula for amps, which is power (in Watts) divided by Volts. This is written as I(Amps) = P(Watts) / V(Volts). By simply rearranging this formula,... More »

In general, watts are calculated by taking the current, in amps, and multiplying by the voltage. AC currents involve additional steps, which may include multiplying by a power factor (for single-phase currents) or multip... More »

The Watts formula, P=V x I, shows the relationship between volts, amps and watts. The "P" signifies power in watts, "V" denotes voltage in volts and "I" stands for the current in amps. This formula is used in electrical ... More »

Tasers send a pulse with 50,000 volts and a few milliamps. The high voltage ensures that the pulse reaches its target, and the low amperage keeps the Taser from causing any lasting damage. More »

The average lemon produces about 0.7 volts of electricity with a current of one mA (0.001 Amps), generating a total power flow of about 0.0007 watts. That means in order to power a 15w compact fluorescent light bulb it w... More »
