How do you compute electrical consumption of a device?

A simple electrical device is a 60 watt light bulb. The bulb is consuming 60 watts of electricity from the moment you turn it on. If you keep that light bulb on for 10 hours the power used is 60 watts x 10 hours = 600 watts of power. Electricity is sold in Kilowatt Hours. A Kilowatt is 1000 watts of power. Depending on the state you live in, it sells for 7 to 18 cents per Kilowatt Hour. So if you leave that light bulb on 10 hours per day for 30 days you will have used up 600 watts x 30 days = 18,000 watts of electricity = 18 Kilowatt Hours. At an average cost of 10 cents per Kilowatt Hour that bulb costs you $1.80 per month to leave on. The formula is watts x time x cost per Kilowatt Hour = cost of use...Answer provided by Gene Evangelist
