Are you certain that you mean "amps"? Maybe you mean 110 VOLTS. The voltage in most home circuits are 110 volts except for a few appliances like driers, well pumps, hot water heaters, etc. And even those appliances probably only use 30 amps or so. The whole house may only have the capacity for 100 amp or maybe as much as 250 amp service. And to answer the question, a 220 volt appliance would not work on a 110 volt circuit.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How can you get 240V single phase power from a 240V 3 phase service Can you just connect to two poles of the 240V 3 phase service?

I'm sure this isn't what you want to hear, but you probably need to ask an electrician familiar with your service and what you want to connect. As a general answer, you can connect a 240v line to line resistive load like an electric water heater to any 240v source. If you also need the 240v to have 120v line to neutral, like a 240v electric stove that contains a 120v clock and oven light, then its possible if the 3 phase power is connected in a "high delta" configuration, and you connect to the correct leads. If you have a high delta service and want to ignore the 3-phase power service and wire most or all of the loads in the building as a single phase load, the utility may have to be consulted.


Will a 240V 60Hz microwave oven work with 240V 50Hz power?

Could you please give us a name of a 240 V 60 Hz microwave? Thank you


Can you change electricity from 120V to 240V in your kitchen so that you could use a new electric oven instead of an old gas oven?

No The wiring isn't big enough to carry the load of an electric range Christmas is no time for a fire! Call an electrician!


How much power does a microwave oven use if it has a current of 5.8A and a voltage of 120V?

5.8 amps x 120 volts = 696 watts


What size breaker is used on a 6800 watt oven 240V?

a 30 amp breaker will work. the formula is power divided by voltage and then use next size up


How do you wire a 240V 60Hz 20A convection oven?

two hot one ground


Does an electric stove burner use 220 or 110?

The burners will most likely be 240V. By keeping the range at 240 volts it will use less amps that at 120V. Say a range and oven is rated at 9000 watts. Watts = amps x volts. 9000/240V = 37.5 amps. 9000/120V = 75 amps. As you can see at 120 volts the amperage is double over 240 volts. You would need a 100 amp breaker and #4 wire to accomodate the range on 120 volts.


A microwave oven uses 1000 W of powerΒ Β The voltage source is 120VΒ Β What is the current flowing through the microwave?

I = P/V = 1,000/120 = 81/3 Amp.


Is it possible to use the 240V oven outlet and convert the voltage to standard 120V with some kind of external adapter?

Yes, but I do not know of an adapter per se. Expose your 220V power lines. There should be two hot wires (black and red). They can technically be split apart and wired to two separate 110V outlets, but the neutral wire would have to be shared (not split, shared), same with the ground wire.AnswerDon't do this. It is a hack and doesn't meet code. Just run the right wire.


Can you plug a 240V oven range into a European outlet?

You might be able to plug in a 240V American oven range into a European outlet depending on the type of plug. SomeÊAmerican high-powered appliancesÊhave 3 or 4 pins, which may require adapters to plug into European outlets.


Can you plug in a 240v-50Hz 2.8kW oven into the mains socket or does it have to be hardwired into a spur?

Yes it can be plugged in with a 13A plug.


Is it safe to use an oven that has a dryer plug put on?

It will work if, the dryer plug you are using is the same electrical voltage as the oven. If your oven is electric, it is 220 - 240v, if gas, 110 - 120v. A 220 plug has either 3 or 4 prongs, depending on your appliance being a 3 or 4 wire system. A 4-wire system will have a red wire (110v power), black wire (110v power), white wire (neutral/common), green wire (ground). A 3-wire system will be missing the white or green wire. 110v system (gas oven or dryer) will have a black (power), white (neutral), green (ground). It will work, but be limited. Dryer circuits are 30A, whereas oven circuits are 50A. You cannot just upgrade the dryer wiring to 50A as it is not rated for that and will start a fire. To use the oven properly you need to install a properly rated circuit. Do it right or don't do it at all. Negligence is fatal with electricity.
