10000 watts / 220 volts = 45.4545 amperes

P=UxI (Watt=Volt x Ampere).AnswerYou must multiply the apparent power, in volt amperes, by the power factor of the load.

The formula you are looking for is I = W/E. Amps = Watts/Volts.

A watt IS a volt-ampere. For reasons wattage and volt-amperes are sometimes specified differently see 'Volt-ampere on Wikipedia' in related links below.

Using Ohm's law, W(Watts)=E(voltage) x I(current), the answer is 10 Amperes.

amps equals watts divided by volts.

Probably about 180 watts, assuming 90% efficiency.

Depends on the amperage, watt= volts*ampere

The current is half an amp because amps times volts equals watts.

Your question answers itself... 1000 watts, when operated on a 480-volt source..

Watts, amperes (amps) and voltage are three aspects of electricity. There are no watts or amps in a volt. Watts are equal to volts multiplied by amperes (watts = amps x volts). If you consider the equation Watt(W)=Voltage(V)*current(I), you can see the relationship between the watt and volt. That is, in the simplest terms consistent with Ohm's Law, putting this equation in to this form, V=W/I. That is watt(a measure of Power) is directly proportional to voltage. This is the mathematical relationship so there is no watt-amp. FYI Ohm's Law shows the relationship between voltage, current and resistance. E=I*R. (amendment) Watts are only directly proportional to voltage if the current is independent of voltage, which is unusual. For a resistive load, the current is also proportional to voltage, so W=V x (V/R) or W=V2/R or I2R

Watts (or kilowatts) and amperes are used to measure different things. Watts is a unit of power; ampere is a unit of current. The relationship (for direct current) is: watt = ampere x volt For AC, the relationship is a bit more complicated: watt = ampere x volt x power factor However, the power factor is often close to one.
