A toaster draws 8 A of current with a voltage of 120 V Which is the power used by the toaster?
The voltage is the main power of a toaster!! but if the current flow is low the heat of the toaster is less heat that you expect, the 8 A is right for your toaster!!! ...
Why kitchen light becomes dimmer when a toaster is turned on?
The toaster consumes a lot of current (or electricity) since it is a heating equipment. All electrical heating equipments consume lot of current. So naturally, there is a deficiency in the limited supply of current to the other devices (like light, fans, refrigerator etc) So the light goes dim. ...
What is an example of a constant electric current?
Here are a couple. Assuming everything is "normal" here, if you drop a bagel in the toaster and turn it on by pushing the lever down, the AC current the toaster uses (draws) will stabilize after a few seconds and stay constant. If you turn on your car's headlights, each lamp will draw a constant current from the DC source after a few seconds of "warm up" time. Those are examples of constant electric current. ...
Does a transformer draw a lot of current when first connected to a source?
Yes it does as it is an Inductor and an Inductor needs to build up a magnetic field. It is called INRUSH current. ...
How do you apply Ohm's law to a toaster?
The wires in a toaster are composed of a metal that heats up when you pass a current through the wires. The voltage, current and resistance for the toaster obey Ohm's Law (Voltage = Current x Resistance). When the wires heat up this heat causes the bread to toast. The toast is not part of the circuit and is not involved in Ohm's Law. ...
If you plug an electric toaster rated at 110 volts into a 220 volt outlet what will current in the toaster be?
If you plug an electric toaster rated at 110 volts into a 220 volt outlet, current in the toaster will be double what it would be in the 110 volt outlet. Double the voltage in a circuit with a fixed resistance will result in double the current in that circuit. At least for a short period until something fails in the toaster, which it will because the nichrome wire heating elements will surely burn through -- if something else doesn't fail...

When testing for current draw your digital multimeter should be set on?
When testing the current draw your digital multimeter should be set on the current. ...
If you plug an electric toaster rated at 110-v into a 220-v outlet what will the outlet current in the toaster be?
It doesnt matter you will smoke it. The current in a resistive circuit is proportional to the voltage. If the voltage doubles and the resistance is the same (elements) the current will double and burn up both the elements and the toaster wiring. Look up "ohms law" for current voltage and resistance effects. Don't try it.. ...
What appliance uses the larger current a toaster or a table lamp?
The toaster wins over a table lamp. To accurately measure this compare the wattage of each device. ...
When does a motor draw current more than its rated current?
A motor will draw up to 300% more current on start up over its rated full load current? ...
Asked in Modification of Old Electrical Work
Why does a clothes dryer requires a 220 volt outlet while a toaster only requires a 110 volt outlet?
Because a toaster does not pull near the current that a cloths dryer does. ...
Do non-electronic toasters draw power when not in use?
yes they do, in fact the toaster draws power more when it is not in use
