How to Convert Volts to Watts?

To convert volts to watts, you can use the formula:

Power (W) = Voltage (V) × Current (A)

Here are a couple of examples to demonstrate the conversion:

Example 1: Suppose you have a circuit with a voltage of 12 volts (V) and a current of 2 amps (A). To calculate the power in watts (W), you can use the formula:

Power = 12V × 2A = 24W

So, in this example, the power consumption of the circuit would be 24 watts.

Example 2: Let’s say you have another circuit with a voltage of 5 volts (V) and a current of 0.5 amps (A). Using the same formula:

Power = 5V × 0.5A = 2.5W

In this case, the power consumption of the circuit would be 2.5 watts.

Remember, when using the formula to convert volts to watts, ensure that the voltage and current values are in the appropriate units (volts and amps, respectively) and perform the multiplication to calculate the power in watts.

How To Convert Volts to Watts using Resistance

To convert volts to watts using resistance, you can use the following formula:

Power (W) = (Voltage^2) / Resistance

Here’s an example to illustrate the conversion:

Example: Let’s say you have a circuit with a voltage of 10 volts (V) and a resistance of 5 ohms (Ω). To calculate the power in watts (W) using the resistance, you can use the formula:

Power = (10V^2) / 5Ω = 100W / 5Ω = 20W

So, in this example, the power consumption of the circuit would be 20 watts.

It’s important to note that this formula assumes a direct current (DC) circuit and uses Ohm’s law (V = IR) to derive the formula for power (P = IV). By rearranging the formula and substituting V with IR, you can obtain the formula for power using resistance. Make sure to use consistent units for voltage (V) and resistance (Ω) to get accurate results.
