To answer this question the wattage of the block heater must be stated. Amps = Watts/Volts.

Watts = Volts x Amps Amps = Watts/Volts = 2000/240 Amps = 8.3

The electric heater will have power rated in Watts. The Amps it will draw depends on the voltage system you are using. Can be calculated by formula I (Amps) = P / V In the USA with 110V system a 2400W heater will draw 2400 Watts / 110 Volts = 21.8 Amps In Australia with a 230 V system a 2400W heater will draw 2400 Watts / 230 Volts = 10.4 Amps

The formula you are looking for is I = W/E.

The equation that is used to find the answer is Amps = Watts/Volts. 1500/120 = 12.5

For a single phase circuit, the equation you are looking for is I = W/E. Amps = Watts/Volts.

The equation that is used to find the answer is Amps = Watts/Volts. 1500/120 = 12.5

There are zero amps in 1000 watts. Watts are the product of amps x volts or I = W/E, watts divided by voltage. As you can see, that if no voltage is stated no amperage can be given. Once you find the voltage of the heater then use the following equation, Amps = Watts/Volts to find the current draw of the 1000 watt heater.

9000 BTU/hour is equivalent to 2300 watts so the heater will draw 10 amps on 230 volts.

A2.2 kW kettle will draw 9.16 amps at 240 volts. I = W/E. Amps = Watts/Volts.

Watts = Amps x Volts. Amps = Watts/Volts, 1000/240 = 4.16 amps

Assuming just a resistive load and no blower motor the Power Factor will be one. Therefore, watts = volts x amps. 4500 = 240 x amps. Rearranging we have amps = 4500 / 240 = 18.7

Watts = Amps x Volts. Amps = Watts/Volts, 5000/240 = 20.8 amps
