Yes, both the sockets and amperage are adaptable between American and Canadian appliances.
The maximum nominal power that can be supplied by a 13-A socket is 13 x 230 = 2990 W. Since the regulations allow a variation of 230 V +10%/-6% -i.e. a maximum voltage of 253 …V, in practice the maximum load is typically 3 kW.
12000 BTU/hr equals 3.5168kW
It depends on the model, if the hair dryer is a 1500 watt hair dryer, then it uses 1500 watts on high heat. If the hair dryer is a 2000 watt hair dryer, then it uses 2000 wa…tts on high heat. Hair dryers come in all different size wattage, so it depends on the size wattage of the dryer. Most hair dryers are 1500 watts.
A European hairdryer operates on 230V. US power is 110V. The hairdryer will need a high power converter that will be fairly expensive. (110V input to 240V output rated at abou…t 800W) It will be less expensive to buy a new one at Walmart when you get to the US than it will be to buy a converter for the European one.
No electrical appliance uses "kilowatts per hour". The question is meaningless and should be rephrased as "How many kWh (kilowatt hours) per hour does a home computer use?", o…r, better, "How many kW (kilowatts) does a home computer use?" Typical home computers use around 100 Watts (one tenth of a kW), which is, of course, one tenth of a kWh per hour. This is around 55 W for the computer and 45 W for the monitor. Printers take extra. Many computers have energy saving modes when they are not being used and their consumption may then drop to 10W (one hundredth of a kW) or less.
MW is megawatts which is a million watts. KW is 1000 watts. Can you do the math or should I tell you it is 1000KW
20 Kw is 45 Amps
the average home including 5 computers, washing machine, hair dryer... etc.( dishwasher is not included) uses approximately 25 kW/day
78 amps per phase
A domestic microwave is usually less than a kilowatt - 850 wats.
Improper question; change the question so it is either "How many kWh per hour does a computer use?" or "How many kW does a computer use?" The term "kW" means "kWh/h." … On the average, a home computer of current manufacture consumes about 0.25 kWh/h
The formula for wattage is W = Amps x Volts. Without the circuit voltage the amperage can not be calculated. kW = A x V x pf/1000. pf is the power factor.
One kilowatt is equal to zero amps. . answer 2 What you want is Ohms Law. Which is the basic electrical formula. I = E/R where I is the current in amps, E is the voltage in vo…lts, and R is the resistance in ohms. And this also can be reformulated to read W (watts) = I2 x R, or W = I x E. So you see it all depends on the resistance. And the voltage. assuming you have a 110V system, then 1000W = I x 110, then I = 9.909 Amps.
The hair dryer is a common household object used to dry hair at a quicker rate. However, if the hair dryer is placed too close, one could risk injuries from burns and scal…ding.
In one meter distance the hairdryer can be 60 dBSPL. Never forget to tell the distance of the measuring microphone from the the hairdryer , because the closer you are to the t…he louder it is. The sound pressure level decreases by 6 dB per doubling of distance from the source to 1/2 (50 %) of the sound pressure initial value. The sound pressure decreases inversely as the distance increases with 1/r from the sound source.
