Electric power in watts (W) to electric current in amps (A) calculator.

* Use e for scientific notation. E.g: 5e3, 4e-8, 1.45e12

Watt (W) is a unit of power. Power is the rate of energy usage per time unit. One watt (W) is equal to one joule (J) per second (S).

Ampere (A) is a unit of electric current. Electric current is the rate of electric charge flow per time unit. One ampere (A) is equal to one coulomb (Q) per second (s).

The current *I* in amps (A) is equal to the power *P* in watts (W), divided by
the voltage *V* in volts (V):

*P* = 200W, *V* = 40V

200W40V

= 5AThe phase current *I* in amps (A) is equal to the power *P* in
watts (W), divided by the
power factor *PF* times the RMS voltage *V* in volts (V):

The power factor of resistive impedance load is equal to 1.

*P* = 2000W, *V* = 110V, *PF* = 0.8

2000W0.8×110V

= 22.72727AThe phase current *I* in amps (A) is equal to the power *P* in
watts (W), divided by square root of 3 times the
power factor *PF* times the line to line RMS voltage *V*_{L-L} in volts (V):

The power factor of resistive impedance load is equal to 1.

The phase current *I* in amps (A) is equal to the power *P* in
watts (W), divided by 3 times the
power factor *PF* times the line to neutral RMS voltage *V*_{L-N} in volts (V):

The power factor of resistive impedance load is equal to 1.

Do not use typical power factor values for accurate calculations.
