1. Locate the wattage amount on the appliance. This is the total power the device uses at any given instant. For example, a lightbulb might use 60 watts of electricity. 2. Determine
Watts. = Volts x Amps x Power Factor. An incandescent light bulb is a resistive load so PF. = 1. ANSWER: = 1/2 Amp.
W(watts)=I(current in amps) times V(volts)
To determine amps, you need to divide watts by volts. So
