## How many watts is in an amp?

Convert watts to amps using the proper equation: Amps equals watts divided by volts. For example, a typical

**60**-watt light bulb on a standard**110**-volt circuit operates at**0.55**amp (**60/110**). Convert amps to watts by reversing the equation: Amps multiplied by volts equals watts.3

## How many units does a 1.5 ton AC consume?

cooling capacity of 1 ton is equal to 3.517 kW of power. For 1.5 ton AC ,power consumption of ac =cooling capacity/EER.

=1.5*3.517/2.7=1.954 kW.

AC consists of

=1.5*3.517/2.7=1.954 kW.

AC consists of

**two units**, Indoor unit which is called the evaporator and the Outdoor Unit which called the Compressor.4

## How many watts is a typical refrigerator?

Find the voltage and amperage of the refrigerator; for instance, you may see "115 V" and "6.5 amps." Multiplying these two numbers tells you how many watts your refrigerator uses -- in this case, 747.5 watts. Smaller refrigerators typically use about 350 watts, while larger models use as much as

**780 watts**.5
