Does a double 50 amp breaker make a 100 amp?

No, a double pole 50 amp breaker protects a 240 volt supply at 50 amps. The number that is on the handle of the breaker is the amperage that the breaker will trip at if an overload occurs on the circuit.

Does double pole 15 amp breaker give 30 amp max protection?

No, it is only used for 15 Amps at 240 Volts. If you need 30 Amps at 240 Volts, use a 30 amp double pole breaker.

What is a 15 amp double pole breaker?

A double pole breaker has one pole attached to one side of your breaker panel's bus or hot leg, and another pole attached to another hot leg or bus, if it is in a residential panel (in the US) each leg of the breaker is 120 volts to ground or neutral and 240 hot leg to hot leg. The 15 amp indicates that the breaker will trip if the circuit exceeds 15 amps across the two outputs of the breaker.

How do you calculate amp of circuit breaker to use on a 4800w oven?

Ovens typically run at 240 volts which will be a two pole breaker in your panel. Watts = volts x amps. 4800 / 240 = 20 amps. If by chance you are using 120 volts then double it to 40 amps. All wiring must conform to size of breaker used.

How many amp circuit breaker is needed for a 1000 watt 240 volt electric baseboard heater?

Watts = Amps x Volts. Amps = Watts/Volts = 4.16. The smallest breaker in a house panel is 15 amps. You will need a 2 pole 15 amp breaker. On a # 14 wire you can load that circuit up to 12 amps.

What's a double breaker 20 amps and 30 amps?

A double breaker is a breaker that has 2 switches on it. One of the switches is 20 amps and the other is 30 amps.

Rating of a 3 pole circuit breaker is the same for each conductor?

Yes, the rating of a 3 pole circuit breaker is the same for each conductor that is connected to it. A three pole breaker rated at 30 amps will have 3 #10 wires from it that connect to the load.

Can you use a double pole 15 amp breaker in place of a 20 amp single pole breaker for a 12000 BTU air conditioner?

If the 12,000 BTU A/C only requires 20 amps to run then yes you can use the same 12 gauge wire but you cannot change it to a 15 amp breaker. You will need to install a 20 amp double pole breaker. If it requires more than 20 amps you will have to replace the wiring and breaker.
