Thanks for the feedback!
this answer was found concerning computer requirements, but the equation used at the end will produce the same results for whichever type of electronics you're trying to guage… the watts on. # Meets ENERGY STAR requirements # Line voltage: 100-125V AC or 200-240V AC # Frequency: 50Hz to 60Hz, single phase # Maximum current: 6.5A (low-voltage range) or 7.5A (high-voltage range) for 100-125V AC, 3.5A for 200-240V AC The maximum current would be when starting up or when the fans and processor are at 100%. I can't remember the Energy Star regs, but at idle it is somewhere down around 20W. Add the consumption of the monitor to this. A LCD screen will be way less than a large CRT. Sustained use would be in the middle - I think the guess of 350W is pretty good for active use. (Note: Watts = Volts x amps, so 6.5A at 120 V = 780 Watts -- that's at peak. Comparatively, this is like 8 light bulbs or 1/2 of a space heater or a microwave.)

About 10 gallons per regular wash.
I think maybe he was asking about the following... I say that there is no such thing as watts per day. This is like saying how many "rates at which i use energy do i use a …day". remember a watt is a Joule/second... you could say at what rate does my home consume energy given a monthly kW*hr usage. if you use 1365 Kw*hr/ month that homes average wattage would be 1.89 kW all day and all night for all 30 days in the month based on the numbers you gave. The math: 1356 kW*hr* (1/30days) *1day/24hrs => 1365/(30*24) = 1.89kW ------ Simpler answer : Energy used per day is measured in watt-hours, or more usually kilowatt-hours, and a typical house might use 35 kilowatt-hours per day. That is equal to 1.458 kilowatt-hours per hour, in other words an average power of 1.458 kilowatts. ------ A Watt is a measure of how fast energy is used, it's one Joule per second, so 'per day' doesn't really have a meaning. The power used in a house, averaged over 1 year, is 800-1000 Watts in the UK.
New energy star models are about 470 kWh per year.
Electric supply companies know how much houses use in groups in aneighbourhood. In a typical neighbourhood in the UK, the powercompanies reckon on about 2 kW per customer. Ind…ividual domesticcustomers have a supply of 60 or 100 amps, which is 14.4 or 24 kW,but naturally they don't all draw the max at any given moment.
From 800 t0 1500 depending on the capacity of the appliance. It is mostly on the back or side of the equipment

You don't 'use' watts and, therefore, you cannot accumulate 'watts' over time. A watt is used to measure power, and power is simply the rate at which you use energy. So your q…uestion is just like asking, 'How many miles per hour does an average car do over a month' ! What you should be asking is how many kilowatt hours of energy does an average house use over a month. And that depends entirely on the size of the house, how many people occupy it, what sort of applianced does it use, what time of year it is, which country it is in, and so on.
400W but it depends on model, make etc.
About 400 watts when cycled on
Typical for a normal average stove: 2000 watts for the oven andeach of the large rings, 1500 watts for each of the small rings andthe grill. These are the max values, but whe…n the thermosts operates in theoven, for example, it might draw power for only 20% of the time.
You will find the wattage of individual bulbs printed on the bottom end of the glass globe.
about half as many watts as the computer per hour a computer uses 200-500
100 miniature lights on a string of Christmas lights is 40.8 watts
an average washer uses around 850 watts some expensive ones uses around 1000 watts
The exact watts used will depend on the type of MP3 player you are asking about. Unfortunately, most portable players specify their power consumption in terms of "up to X hour…s of playback", which will depend on the capacity of the battery and the drain the unit places on that battery. Therefore, it is relatively hard to gauge this answer. However, it would be fair to assume that since a clock radio consumes approximately 1 watt, that a typical MP3 player would use somewhere between 2-10 watts, depending on CPU speed, average CPU load, and backlight brightness/duration settings (if any). For example, an "Apple iPod Shuffle" probably uses 1-2 watts during normal operation, as it has only a low-end CPU, and no backlight, while an iPod Classic probably runs closer to 10 watts. Note that this answer does not include those systems that contain additional features, such as cameras, WiFi/3G/4G/Bluetooth networking, etc. Those features will use additional power while in use. Most devices turn off physical power to unused devices to prevent excessive drain. Non-portable devices will have different requirements; car-mounted versions may use 10-20 watts, while a "boombox" version may use up to 1000 watts; the speakers count as part of the unit's usage in this case.
