The watt is defined as 'the power resulting when one joule of energy is dissipated in one second'.

The definition of the ampere is : 'that constant current that, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length and negligible cross-sectional area and placed one metre apart in a vacuum, would produce between them a force equal to 2 pi x 10^-7 newtons per unit length'.

It depends on how many amperes there are. If you have 1 amperes, then you get 260 watts. If you have 260 amperes, then you have 67,600 watts. If you have 0.001 amperes, then you have 0.26 watts. Its just watts = volts times amperes. Of course, the limiting factor is the available power behind the 260 volts, but you did not say anything about that.

Find the nameplate rating it will say volts amperes watts frequency model number If watts is not on there watts= volts divided by amperes . for your estimated watts

Watts = volts x amperes. So if your region uses 110 volts, 20 amperes is equivalent to 2200 watts; if your region uses 220 volts, 20 amperes is equivalent to 4400 watts.

It is expressed in Volt-Amperes not Watts.

No they are not. Watts is a measure of the power. Amperes is a measure of the current. The equation is W = a x v ; where W is watts, a is amperes and v is volts.
