You purchased a electric heating stove and you are trying to figure the amount of electric it would use It is 750 watts or 1500 watts 120V 60 Hz?
Watts are a unit of power, so you know how much power the unit will draw when it is "on." More details on that later. First, you are billed for electricity in kilowatt-hours (KWH). (Look at your latest bill to see how much you are charged per KWH. It probably varies: so much for the first so many KWH, then a different rate for each KWH over the first threshold.) Next, a kilowatt-hour is 1,000 watts times one hour. To run the 1500 watt heater for eight hours (assuming full on, but more details on that later) would consume 1,500 times 8 divided by 1,000 = 12 KWH. Compare that to your electric bill to estimate how much it would cost. Finally, if the heater has a thermostat, it will not be "on" all the time. When the temperature around the unit rises above its thermostat setting, the heating elements will turn off, so it will no longer consume its rated power. While in this mode, main switch on but heating elements turned off by the thermostat, it wil draw some power, but only on the order of miliwatts (thousandths of a watt). It is not possible to predict its "duty cycle," how much time it will be "on" as a fraction of whole time, without either a) some impossibly complicated engineering formula and equally impossible to get figures regarding the size of the space it is heating, how drafty it is, how well insulated it is, and the ambient temperature outside the space; or b) try it out and time how long it is on and how long it is off over the course of a couple of hours. Anyway, the power rating in watts times the length of time you expect to turn it on per month divided by 1000 will give you a maximum figure for how many KWH it could possibly use. Actual consumption will be somewhat less, but impossible to predict.

15 amps x 110 volts = 1650 watts 20 amps x 110 volts = 2200 watts 30 amps x 110 volts = 3300 watts 15 amps x 120 volts = 1800 watts 20 amps x 120 volts = 2400 watts 30 amps x 120 volts = 3600 watts You can only run a single 1500 watt heater on either 15 or 20 amp line regardless of if …it is 120 or 110 volts. you may run two 1500 watt heaters on a 30 amp 110 or 120 volt line though Just use another circuit (not just another outlet as many outlets are common to a single circuit) one circuit for each 1500 watt heater. warning, do NOT use anything that uses the same amount of watts that your circuit can handle, for example, if you have a 120 volt outlet on a 15 amp circuit the max for that outlet is 1800, thus you need to stay WELL UNDER that amount. If you use exactly 1800 watts and the breaker doesn't trip then the resistance of the wires and connections can heat up causing a fire. The further from the breaker box = more resistance volts times amps = watts watts divided by volts = amps watts divided by amps = volts its a simple math equation. You can check your breaker box for the amps for each circuit, most recent homes are 120 volts (note that double breakers are double the current, if your household voltage is 120 then double breakers are 240 volts) a rule of thumb... appliances require a set amount of volts, you must make sure you plug it into the right voltage, the appliance itself will take care of how many amps it draws, thus how many watts it uses. Most appliances will list the voltage required and the amps that it draws somewhere near the power cord.
An electric heater is an electric appliance that convert electrical energy in to heat. Working principle of an electric heater as per "Joule heating theory" When electric current passes through a resistor that electric energy convert to heat (best and simple example is a spring type heating eleme…nt). When Voltage applied both end of a wire/spring type Resistance wire, voltage flow and this voltage help that wire to heat up and convert in to heat. A Resistance wire quality, length & thickness depend how many time heat spread and resist with that heat. K.watt/ Watt = Applied voltage x Ampere. Many quality and types of electric heating elements are there depend upon purpose of use. Few best heating elements known as Kanthal wire, Nicrome wire, Ureka wire, Super Kanthal, Silicon Carbide heating elements etc.
To have the real answer you must first understand Capacitance, Resistance, and inductance. And since you probably don't want a physics lession. "Simply Put" the higher the frequency " f " the reduction of current " I ". in the 50's we ran off a 25Hz system, we then realized that it was much more eff…icient to run everything at 60hz, thus why we run 60hz. IF you want more info look up a RLC cct and you will understand more.
\n. \n. \nYou better have a 10,000 watt capable generator.
i think around 480 or so.
A watt is not typically used as a unit of measurement here. You may be asking for the number of watt-hours. Power is billed in kilowatt-hours (KWH). A 10 watt electric blanket use 10 watt-hours per hour, so that would be 2.5 watt-hours in 15 minutes. Divide 2.5 watt-hours by 1000 to get KWH. Take… the total kilowatt-hours and times that by your rate (for me 15 cents) to get the total cost for those 15 minutes ($0.000375 or almost free, far less than a penny)
Do different watt light bulbs produce different amounts of heat for a 60 watt light bulb and a 40 watt light bulb and a 100 watt light bulb?
in short yes.. the higher the wattage the higher the heat output.. this goes from pretty much every form of lighting we have.
0.0001. Mega = 1000000. There are a million watts in a megawatt.
It depends on the stove. If you can find the manual, or look up the AMPs it uses. Should be around 50. Multiply 120V if you live in the US. By the number of Amps. That will give you the total amount of watts.
There is no such thing as an 'electrical watt' and a 'thermal watt'. The watt is simply the SI unit for power, which is the rate of doing work or the rate of heat transfer.
Watts and Frequency (Hz) are two different measurements. Wattage is the product of amps times volts. Frequency (Hz) is a measurement used with alternating current. Alternating current changes it's direction (cycles) so many times per second. 60 Hz is 60 cycles per second.
To determine the number of watts of electric energy consumed by electric iron, we need to multiply the volts and the ampere used by that particular electric iron, so the product of those two is the watts used by the electric iron.
To put it into perspective a 1000 watt base board heater will heat a 10' x 10' = 100 sq ft room.
The watts depend on the size of the heating elements and how many elements are being used at the time in question. The owners manual will be able to tell you the watts for the stove top burners. The other heating elements you need to find out about are in the oven/broiler. Adding them all up will gi…ve you the total watts. . The instruction manual will tell you what size electric service you need for the range. Be aware that this will be more than the range will ever use, and will contain a safety factor as well. Electric range cords are generally 220V, 50 amps. That means it is expected to use less than 11,000 watts.
A heat pump has a cop rating of 2.5 to 1 if 200 watts of electricity are used to run the heat pump how many equivalent watts are produced?
19.a heat pump has a COP rating of 2.5 to 1. If 200 watts of electricity are used to run the heat pump, how many equivalent watts(heat) are produced?
1.5 kW "Kilo" means 1000, so a 1500 W appliance uses energy at the rate of 1500 W / 1000 = 1.5kW. By the way, you probably do not mean "kilowatts per hour." A watt (or a kilowatt) measures the rate of energy use. Rate units already have the time parameter built in: for example, "kilometers per… hour" is a measure of one's rate of travel. What you may mean is "kilowatt-hours," which is what the unit the electric company uses to figure your bill. If you are in the UK, which averages about 7p/kWh for electricity, the fireplace will cost you about 10.5p each hour you run it. In the USA the average cost for electricity is about $0.12/kWh, so the fireplace will cost you about $0.18 every hour.
To figure that out you need to know the Amperage that it draws and what the voltage of the circuit is that you're using. Once you know that you can figure out how many watts it uses by doing simple math. Voltage x Amperage = Watts
Providing the lamp is operating at its rated voltage, a 60-W lampwill require 60 W. Thought that should be self-evident!
