Watts is the product of amps times volts. If you are asking how many watts can be put on a 15 amp circuit breaker then 15 x 120 = 1800. This will probably trip the breaker because it is close to the breaker threshold. So lets say 1600 watts.

15A*120V=1800watts

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

There is a number on the end of each breaker handle. This number represents the maximum amperage handling the breaker will allow before tripping. There is a number on the end of each breaker handle. This number represents the maximum amperage handling the breaker will allow before tripping.

That depends on voltage you use. watts=voltage x amps. if you know the voltage then you can calculate the watts automatically. For example if voltage is 230V, then watts is........ watts=230 x 60. if you want in kilo watts then multiply with 10^-3.....

If the voltage is 120 Volts it would be 2400 watts. Watt = volts times amps.

It depends on what voltage you are using. W = A x V.

The maximum wattage that a 30 amp breaker can handle is 30 x 230 = 6900 watts. Other variables come into play and this number will decrease depending on the load, duty time, and difference in voltage fluctuation.

The connected load in watts to a single pole 30 amp breaker is calculated by the following equation. W = I x E. Watts = Amps x Volts. A higher wattage than what you calculate will trip the breaker.Also another equation you should be familiar with, for breaker sizing if only the wattage is given on the nameplate, is that for amperage from watts. I = W/E. Amps = Watts/ Volts.

The formulae for calculating watts to amps is Watts divided by Voltage. Therefore to get from Amps to Watts the calculation is Amps × Voltage. Therefore if you are working on a 240 volt supply the calculation is 20 (Amps) × 240 (Volts) which = 4800 watts.

A 12 gauge wire on a 20 amp breaker can handle 2,400 watts. The electrical code states it can never continuously be loaded to more than 80% which equates to 1,920 watts.

20 amps * 120Volts = 2400 watts 2400Watts *80% = 1920 watts allowed on circuit. 1920watts / 65 watt light bulb = 29 bulbs
