Is a branch voltage in each branch of a parallel circuit less than the applied voltage?

Yes. In a 240 volt circuit, the total applied voltage is 240 volts but each leg is carrying only 120 volts.

How many outlets can you put on a 15 amp tandem breaker?

15 amps x120 volts =1800 watts. NEC requires you not exceed 60% of the load. Therefore 1800 x .60 =1080. 1080 watts divided by 120 volts = 9. You can safely install 9 outlets on each 15 amp circuit but no more. This is assuming only those 9 outlets will be on the circuit and no lights.

Why does 120 volt house outlet read 180 volts?

This problem is usually associated with a loose neutral (the white wire ) in a multi-wire branch circuit. It could be loose on any of the devices on the circuit or at the neutral bar in the breaker panel. Start at the panel at work your way through the outlets involved.

What is the Power dissipated allowed by a circuit breaker with 208 volts and 5 amps?

1,040 watts or 1.04 KW.

How many wall outlets can you have in a circuit using a 240 watt load?

Watts = volts x amps x Power Factor. Assume a PF of one for a resistive load. Wall outlets in US are typically 120 volts. 240 / 120 = 2 amps. At 80 % rated load a typical 20 amp circuit souls handle 16 amps. Therefore, 8 wall outlets each with a single 240 watt device.

Is your ipod nano 220 volts or 110 volts?

An ipod nano is 110 volts. Why, because our regular outlets are 120 volts AC.

What is the typical number of amps per circuit and what is the typical number of volts that enter your home and what is the typical number of volts for each circuit and what is a gfi?

15 amps per circuit 240 Volts total 120 Volts each circuit GFCI=Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter

How do you check the volts?

by attatching a voltmeter into the circuit you are trying to measure the volts of.

How many outlets can you have on a gfi breaker?

The electrical code does not have a requirement for the total number of outlets that can be installed on a GFCI circuit. It is the total wattage that will be used on that circuit that determines the number of outlets you can install. A 20 amp circuit at 120 volts equals 2,400 watts. The total safe load is 60% of that 2,400 watts or 1,440 watts. As long as you do not exceed that limit you can install pretty much as many as you want. I personally try to never exceed 15 maximum on a circuit if I know for sure they will never be overloaded.

Calculate the resistance of a circuit that draws 10 amps at a voltage of 120 volts?

The resistance of a circuit that draws 10 amps at 120 volts is volts/amps or 12 Ohms.

What are the averag volts used in a US Home?

How do you work out amps in an electrical circuit?

Volts divided by resistance or Watts divided by Volts

How do you covert 120 volts to 208 volts?

The circuit will have to be rewired with a different gauge wire.

How many outlets and lights can be put on a 15 amp circuit?

The math is simple. Watts = Volts * Amps In this case Amps are fixed, at 15, and you want to know the total wattage that can be drawn by all the appliances you add to the circuit. So the answer depends on the voltage. Voltage can be anything, but there are some commonly used domestic supply values: For 220 volts, 220*15 = 3300watts For 110 volts, 110*15 = 1760watts For 240 volts, 240*15 = 3600watts

How many wall outlets per 20 amp breaker?

Really depends on the load you are going to have on this circuit. But a general rule of thumb for a bedroom, living room, dining room is no more than 13 outlet on a 20 amp circuit.120 volts x 20 amps = 24002400 / 180 volts = 13.333 outletsI personally never put more than 12 on a 20 amp circuit.

How do you rewire a 110 volt receptacle to produce 220 volts?

You would need to rewire it at the breaker box, and switch it from a single pole breaker to a double pole breaker. But when you do, all outlets and lights on that circuit will carry 240 volts. Best thing to do is run a new wire to the outlet you want to carry 240 volts. Put it on it's own circuit with the proper size breaker. I advise you to call an electrician unless you know what you are doing.

What is the max amp for 100' 14 gauge copper wire?
