# How much voltage and current is given to homes?

Typically in the US, voltage is +/- 110-120 volts AC RMS (so you can get 240 total), and a typical service will be 100 Amps (I believe, but I could be wrong on "typical" here). This doesn't mean the home uses 100Amps, it means this is the peak amount the home is allowed to draw.

### How much current does a 23 watt bulb consume?

To answer this question a voltage must be given.

### What is the meaning of 'voltage drives current'?

Think of Voltage as the pressure and Amperage (current) as flow. If you think of it as pipes with water then the pressure would be voltage, and current would be how much water flows past a certain point in the pipe in a given time.

### How much voltage does it take to injure someone?

Any amount of voltage at all if given the right path. Its technically not the voltage that matters, but the current. As little as 20 milliamps across the heart is enough to kill you.

### How much load current of an ac?

Load current is simply the name given to the current drawn by a load from its supply. In the case of a d.c. circuit, this is determined by dividing the supply voltage by the resistance of the load; in the case of an a.c. circuit, it is determined by dividing the supply voltage by the impedance of the load.

### If voltage is increased and current remains the same what happens to resistance?

In a DC electrical circuit, there are 3 main components as you said, Voltage, Current and Resistance. The circuit can be thought of as a voltage source (like a battery) and a load (like a light/motor). The load has a given resistance, and the source has a given voltage. If the resistance in the load remains the same, and you increase the voltage at the source, according to Ohms Law, V = IR (voltage =… Read More

Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance. Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance.

### Why does the voltage need to be so high in a power station?

In long range,electric current can flow only when the wires are given high voltage.The voltage is about 20-30kV.eg.lightning. ---------------------------------------- Current of any voltage can flow in a wire. However, the larger the current is, the larger the resistance to flow and the greater the loss of energy during transmission. Therefore, to transfer the same amount of energy per second (power) without as much loss of energy due to resistance, current needs to be lowered by… Read More

### How much current was in the circuit?

I'm sure I can answer this if given more details, what circuit? current is determined by voltage and impedence(resistance) in a purely resistive circuit it is pretty basic, in alternating voltage circuits the impedence is dependent on the frequency of the voltage/current. inductors and capacitors are designed into a/c circuits to force the load to behave like a resistive circuit which boils down to how much voltage divided by how much resistance you have, 120… Read More

### Why must an LED always have a resistor connected in series with it?

An LED usually has a resistor connected in series with it because an LED (light emitting diode) is not linear in current to voltage (like a resistor) and has to be operated within specified current and voltage conditions. In most circuits the supply voltage is higher than the forward voltage of the LED so the LED would burn up from too much current without a current limiting resistor in series. The resistor sets the voltage… Read More

### Can an overhead conductor carry more current on a cold day as compared to a hot day?

The only limit on how much current the conductor can carry, regardless of the weather, is the amount of current that causes the conductor to melt. The current in such a conductor depends on the voltage between its ends, and on the resistance of the conductor. The resistance of the conductor is somewhat less when it's cold, so a given voltage would result in more current.

### How much current flow in 1 watt bulb?

### What is leading current and lagging current?

Leading and lagging currents are not so much "currents" as they are "situations" or "conditions" in an electrical circuit. Reactive characteristics, if there are any, will not let voltage and current be in phase in a circuit. (Unless they are equal, and this will be true at only one frequency.) In some circuits, current leads voltage (or voltage lags current), and in other circuits, current lags voltage (voltage leads current), depending on the circuit and… Read More

### Can you put your adapter in your room and use extra cable of 50 meters to power up Switch with DC current?

### How does electrical resistance change the current in a circuit?

Electrical resistance is opposition to electric current flow. There is a resistance to the flow of current. And a "balance" between applied voltage and resistance determines how much current will flow in a circuit. For a given applied voltage, if we increase the resistance, the current flow will decrease. For that same applied voltage, if we decrease the resistance, the current flow will increase. It's a simple relationship, and it is set down by the… Read More

### Why high voltage does not kill?

Its not voltage that kills it is current. High voltage CAN kill, if it can also provide high current (especially if the current comes near the heart as it takes under 1mA to stop the heart which isn't much current). However if the high voltage source is current limited and/or the current only passes through the extremities it is very unlikely to kill.

### What is Difference Between Current Source and Voltage Source?

A voltage source provides a voltage, a current source a current. In reality, there is no such thing as an ideal voltage source or an ideal current source. There are usually internal resistances and limits of operation, such as the amount of current a voltage source can provide, or the amount of voltage a current source can provide. Good examples of a voltage source are batteries, generators, and alternators. These all provide a fixed or… Read More

( R ) Resistance determines… Read More

### Does more ah in a battery mean its stronger?

Depends on what you mean by stronger. Ah stands for ampere hour, which is a unit of energy. A battery with 1 Ah can deliver a current of 1 Ampere for 1 hour, or 2 Amperes for 30 minutes, etc. The voltage of a battery tells you how much current the battery will produce through a given resistance; more voltage is probably closer to what you mean by stronger, since knowing the current and the… Read More

### Do fuses protect against over voltage?

Fuses protect by blowing if too much current flows through the fuse and essentially melts the wire. A very high voltage could cause arcing problems. If you keep the same load then increasing the voltage will increase causes an increase in current. The voltage, current and load (Resistance) are related by Ohm's Law Voltage = Current x Resistance

For a line of given cross section and material, the power capacity will depend on the current carried, since resistance heating is proportional to (current)2 . For a given power, current is inversely proportional to voltage. Thus raising the voltage from 69 to 390 kv would reduce the current by a factor 69/390 = 0.177 , for the same power transmission, and reduce the heating losses by 0.1772 = 0.031. So you can see why… Read More

The current rating of a 16 kV.A (not 'kva') depends upon the voltage rating of that generator, with 16 kV.A being the product of the rated current and the rated voltage.

### Will wattage decrease if voltage increase and amps decrease?

It depends by how much it changes. Power (watts) = current (amps) x voltage If the current halves and the voltage doubles, the power won't change. But if the current is cut in half and the voltage only goes up by a little bit the watts will go down. If the current only goes down a little bit but the voltage doubles, then the watts will go up.

### Why does under voltage cause overheating?

Overheating is a result of too much current flowing. AC motors are constant power devices, meaning they require the same amount of power to spin under a specific load. Power is equivalent to voltage times current. If voltage to a motor sags, the motor will attempt to make up the lack of voltage with an increase in current so the power stays the same. If voltage sags too much, the motor will overheat.
