What would you like to do?

What would cause the current to get above 30A and what items would make the current go so high?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

not enough information to give an most buildings have at least 100 to 200 amp service what specifically are you talking about? a water heater is 30 amps but it does not use 30 all time

Low resistance and high voltage cause high currents [in amperes]
an Ampere is the unit that is used to measure the volume of current flowing through a conductor. Just because you have a 30 ampere breaker doesn't mean you are drawing [using] 30 amps. You can have a 30 ampere breaker and be drawing NO load!! The quantity of electricity used in amps, pushed by the pressure in volts is what is stated as power usage in watts. 3 amp current at 120 volts gives a power consumption of 360 watts. totally confused now? worse yet, an ampere is the amount of current that will be caused to flow through a material with an electrical resistance of 1 ohm when an electrical potential [pressure difference] of 1 volt is applied.

How do you answer 'What changes or improvements in your current work situation would make the job so attractive that you would not want to leave' in a job interview?

That's a very interesting question to be asked in an interview and a great opportunity to impress the interviewer with your response. It's a question that should be thought th

Why is heat caused with a high current?

When the current flow through a circuit it means that the electrons flowing through it.As the atoms remain fixed at their respective positions.When these electrons strike with

How does a rheostat make a current high?

The rheostat makes the current high by decreasing the resistance.....and as v=ir.. if r has been decreased and v remains constant than i will increase..

Would it be true to say that current causes voltage?

Volts = Current x Resistance. The voltage is where the potential resides for the amount of current flowing through a resistance. Think about the voltage as a potential source

How would high voltage effect the current in the wires?

The current is determined by the load. So if the conductors are designed to carry the resulting load current, then the high-voltage supply will have no effect. If not, then th
