How do you convert watts to amps?
Watts is the unit of measurement of Power. Ampere (Amps) is the unit of measurement of electricity. Converting watts to amps is not possible as both the units are measures of different quantity. But, you can calculate current in amps by dividing power in watts by voltage in volts.
Let us learn here how to convert watts to amps using a simple example.
Current (I) in amps = Power (in watts) / Voltage (in volts)
Consider an example, where the power consumption is 330 watts and the voltage supply is 110 volts, what is the current I?
Step 1: Given values,
Power Consumption = 330 watts
Voltage Supply = 110 volts
Step 2: Applying the values in the formula,
Current I = Power (P) / Voltage (V)
I = 330 / 110
I = 3 amps
