# Why are amps important in electrical power units?

# Can you use your Electric-Acoustic with an Electric amp?

Sure you can but, it will not sound near as good as if you use an amp made just for acoustic guitars. Electric guitar amps all have distortion even if it is set and soun…ds perfectly clean to your ears....distortion is not an acoustic guitars friend. If you dont believe me go to a guitar store and plug in an electric acoustic into each amp...you will see what I mean.

# Do electric guitars need amps?

No, but otherwise other people wont be able to hear it. If you want to use it at a house or indoors you don't need one.

# What are two common units for electric power?

Watts or Kilowatts

# What are units of electrical power?

The units of power are watts, horsepower, and joules persecond.

# If you multiply electric current in amps times resistance in ohms what units will the resulting answer be in?

Voltage, measured in volts. This question is derived from the fundamental relationship between electrical components which is known as Ohms Law: V = I x R … where V = voltage (Volts), I = current (Amps) and R= resistance (Ohms).

# What is the unit of power that is equal to volts x amps?

Power=Volts x Amps Unit for power is watts

# What is the unit of electrical power named after the Scottish inventor of the steam engine?

The watt, named after James Watt.

# How many watts of power does does an electric drill use when it is plugged into 120 volts and draws 10 amps?

Power = Volts * current [p = E*I]; 120volts*10amps = 1200watts

# What is the unit for measuring electrical power?

Electrical power is measured in watts. Answer Power is measured in watts. There is no such thing as 'electrical power' as power is simply a rate. volt The basic …unit of electrical power is the watt. If the power is very large, then kilowatts (thousands of watts) or megawatts (millions of watts) are also used. Power is simply a rate, so you cannot really have 'electrical' power, 'mechanical' power, etc. In the SI system of measurements, power is measured in watts (W). Electric power is usually measured in watts, kilowatts, or sometimes megawatts. One watt is equal to one volt-ampere or one joule per second. Electric power is the rate at which an electrical circuit transfers electric energy. The SI unit of power is the watt which is one joule per second. Wattage, Watts, and (W) are what power is measured in there just different ways to say watts. "Watts" is the term used to define a quantity of power. If you were looking for a device used to measure power, that is called a wattmeter. Technically, power is a measure of how fast energy is consumed, so energy can be measured as power multiplied by time. Answer There is no such thing as 'electrical' power, as power is simply a 'rate'. Power is a measure of the rate of doing work, transferring energy, or of heat transfer. As energy, work, and heat are all measured in joules, power is measured in joules per second which, in SI, is given a special name: the watt. Another example of a 'rate' is velocity. We do not describe different times of velocity; neither should we describe different types of power. Electrical power in SI is measured in watts, or joules per second. It is equal to current times voltage, which is also equal to current squared times resistance. (P=IV and V=IR, where P is power, I is current, V is voltage, and R is resistance.) The watt is a derived unit of power in the International System of Units (SI), named after the Scottish engineer James Watt. The unit, defined as one joule per second, measures the rate of energy conversion.

# What is the Unit substation in electrical power distribution?

In a power distribution grid, there is a main power source from usually a generating plant or dam. It is then subdivided into 2 or more substations usually to power cities or …localities away from the power source. These substations convert the distribution voltage (several thousand volts), down to voltages that can be distributed through the locality. Further reduction of voltage occurs at individual poles that feed the business or home for 120-220 volts, etc.

# One unit in electricity meter consumes how many watts of power?

A standard unit of electricity that is the minimum charged is a kWh. Therefore 1 unit of electricity is equal to 1000watts being used for an hour. eg. A 100w light bulb bu…rning for 10 hours would use 1 kWh which equals 1 unit. Answer A 'unit' is short for 'Board of Trade Unit', a government organisation that used to regulate the cost of electrical energy in Britain. A 'unit' is exactly equivalent to a kilowatt hour. Further to your question, though, you do not 'consume power'; you consume 'energy'. So, asking how much power (watts) is consumed by energy (unit) makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. A unit or kilowatt hour is defined as 'the amount of energy consumed, over a period of one hour, at the rate of one kilowatt'.

# What Unit of electrical power is equal to one joule?

There is no unit of power equal to one joule. This is because joules are used to measure energy, not power. One joule is one watt-second. In a purely electrical environment…, it might arise as one volt-ampere-second.
