## What is Watts-volts-amps-ohms

A Watts-Volts-Amps-Ohms calculator, also known as a power calculator or electrical calculator, is a tool used to perform calculations involving these electrical quantities. It allows you to calculate the missing value when given three out of the four values (Watts, Volts, Amps, Ohms) in an electrical circuit.

The relationships between these electrical quantities can be described by the following formulas:

1. Power (Watts) = Voltage (Volts) x Current (Amps) This formula calculates the power (in watts) based on the voltage and current in the circuit.

2. Power (Watts) = Current (Amps)^2 x Resistance (Ohms) This formula determines the power (in watts) based on the current and resistance in the circuit.

3. Voltage (Volts) = Current (Amps) x Resistance (Ohms) This formula calculates the voltage (in volts) based on the current and resistance in the circuit.

4. Current (Amps) = Voltage (Volts) / Resistance (Ohms) This formula determines the current (in amps) based on the voltage and resistance in the circuit.

5. Resistance (Ohms) = Voltage (Volts) / Current (Amps) This formula calculates the resistance (in ohms) based on the voltage and current in the circuit.

Using a Watts-Volts-Amps-Ohms calculator, you can input the known values and calculate the missing value by applying the appropriate formula.

For example, if you know the voltage is 120 volts, the current is 5 amps, and you want to calculate the power, you can use the first formula:

Power (Watts) = 120 V x 5 A Power (Watts) = 600 W

In this example, the power in the circuit would be 600 watts.

This type of calculator is particularly helpful in electrical engineering, circuit design, and troubleshooting scenarios where you need to determine or verify the values of power, voltage, current, or resistance in an electrical circuit.

## Ohms calculations

The resistance R in ohms (Ω) is equal to the voltage V in volts (V) divided by the current I in amps (A): The resistance R in ohms (Ω) is equal to the squared voltage V in volts (V) divided by the power P in watts (W): The resistance R in ohms (Ω) is equal to the power P in watts (W) divided by the squared current I in amps (A): ## Amps calculations

The current I in amps (A) is equal to the voltage V in volts (V) divided by the resistance R in ohms (Ω): The current I in amps (A) is equal to the power P in watts (W) divided by the voltage V in volts (V): The current I in amps (A) is equal to the square root of the power P in watts (W) divided by the resistance R in ohms (Ω): ## Volts calculations

The voltage V in volts (V) is equal to the current I in amps (A) times the resistance R in ohms (Ω): The voltage V in volts (V) is equal to the power P in watts (W) divided by the current I in amps (A): The voltage V in volts (V) is equal to the square root of the power P in watts (W) times the resistance R in ohms (Ω): ## Watts calculation

The power P in watts (W) is equal to the voltage V in volts (V) times the current I in amps (A): The power P in watts (W) is equal to the squared voltage V in volts (V) divided by the resistance R in ohms (Ω): The power P in watts (W) is equal to the squared current I in amps (A) times the resistance R in ohms (Ω): ## Watts-volts-amps-ohms calculator Example

Here's an example table that demonstrates how to calculate these values using different combinations:

Voltage (V) Current (I) Resistance (R) Power (W)
12V - -
24V 3A - -
- 5A -
- - 72W

To calculate each value, we can use the following formulas:

1. Power (W) = Voltage (V) * Current (I)
2. Current (I) = Voltage (V) / Resistance (R)
3. Resistance (R) = Voltage (V) / Current (I)
4. Voltage (V) = Power (W) / Current (I)

Let's calculate the missing values in the table:

For the first row:

• Power (W) = 12V * (12V / 4Ω) = 36W

For the second row:

• Resistance (R) = 24V / 3A = 8Ω
• Power (W) = 24V * 3A = 72W

For the third row:

• Voltage (V) = 5A * 8Ω = 40V
• Power (W) = 40V * 5A = 200W

For the last row:

• Power (W) = 72W (given)
• Voltage (V) = 24V (calculated using Power and Current)

Please note that "-" indicates a missing value in the table.

Using these formulas, you can calculate the values of watts, volts, amps, and ohms in an electrical circuit given the available information.
