##### Sample Question:

Here is how we can calculate watt to amp. How many amps is 500W?

Solution :
I = P/V

If we input the P = 500 Watts and V = 120 Volts, we get:

I = 500 Watts/120 Volt = 4.17 Amps
Watts: Amps (at 24V):
1 Watt to amps at 24V: 42 mA (milliamps)
10 Watts to amps at 24V: 420 mA
50 Watts to amps at 24V: 2.08 Amps
100 Watts to amps at 24V: 4.17 Amps
200 Watts to amps at 24V: 8.33 Amps
300 Watts to amps at 24V: 12.50 Amps
400 Watts to amps at 24V: 16.67 Amps
500 Watts to amps at 24V: 20.83 Amps
600 Watts to amps at 24V: 25.00 Amps

### Simple WATT - AMP - VOLT Formula

Converting watts to amps can be done using the power formula, which states that I = P / E, where P is power measured in watts, I is current measured in amps, and E is voltage measured in volts.

Watts = Amps x Volts

Volt = Watts / Amps

Amps = Watts / Volts

Each of these quantities are measured using different units:

• Voltage is measured in volts (V)
• Current is measured in amps (A)
• Power is measured in watts (W)
```For example, find the amperage of 1200 watts at 120 volts

current = power / voltage
current = 1200W / 120V
current = 10A

```

## AC and DC power systems

The labels AC and DC are used to describe the types of current flow in a circuit. For direct current (DC) the electric current flows only in one direction. However, in alternating current (AC) the electric current changes direction at several times per second.

## Single-Phase AC Circuit Watts to Amps Conversion

Converting watts to amps for a single-phase AC circuit with power factor uses a slightly different formula.

I(A) = P(W) / V(V) × PF

## Three-Phase AC Circuit Watts to Amps Conversion

### Using Line to Line Voltage

For three-phase AC circuits where the line to line voltage is known, the formula to convert watts to amps is:

I(A) = P(W) / VL-L(V) × PF × √3

The current I in amps is equal to the power P in watts divided by the line to line voltage V in volts multiplied by the power factor PF multiplied by the square root of 3.

### Using Line to Neutral Voltage

For three-phase AC circuits where the line to neutral voltage is known, the formula to convert watts to amps is:

I(A) = P(W) / VL-N(V) × PF × 3

The current I in amps is equal to the power P in watts divided by the voltage V in volts multiplied by the power factor PF multiplied by 3.
