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

Where would you find convection currents?

There are a number of places where you would find convectioncurrents. In most cases they will happen within the geospherethrough plate tectonics, hydrosphere through ocean cur

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

Where would you get alternating current?

You can manufacture your own alternating current, using an oscillator and amplifier capable of outputting significant power. But it's a lot easier to just get it from one

What causes current to flow what makes it do this?

the basic cause of current flow is the movement of electrons ,basically when some potential difference is applied between any two terminal of a wire electrons will flow from l

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..
