How Many Amps Does a 100 Watt Light Bulb Draw?

Answer

A 100 watt light bulbs draws 0.833 amps from a 120 volt supply. To calculate the correct reading, Voltage (V) is multiplied by Current (I). A watt represents a unit power (P). Example; Current (I)= Watts (P) / Voltage (V). 100 watts/120 volt supply= 0.833 amps
