Yes it does
no it doesnt
The KW of a home depends on the amount of electrical equipment in the home. An electric utilization equipment such as an electric heater, air conditioner, water heater, stove …and/or dryer all add significant KW loads to a home. Things like refrigerators, freezers, forced air furnace also are major contributors. Lighting is usually less than most loads in a home unless you have some large wattage (500 to 1000 watt), fixtures. A range for a normal home can vary widely during a day between 1.0 kw to 15.0 kw. in a home that is mostly electric. There are a couple of was to calculate an estimate for your home's KW total. You can get an average by dividing the KWH on your electric bill by the total hours in that month's billing cycle. (24 X # of days) This an average not a peak,which what you are using when every thing is on at the same time. To figure peak, add up all the name plate amp rates of all your electrical equipment and multiply by their voltage. (usually 120 or 240 for residential) IE. If your refrigerator is listed as 12 amps and is 120 volts it will be using 1.44 kw.(1440 watts) If the wattage is listed no multiplying is necessary, just add it up.
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.
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.
how many amps does a hair dryer use
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.
It's the same. Just plug the electric thing into the plug hole and the switch it on.
A domestic microwave is usually less than a kilowatt - 850 wats.
