**Watts** (W) is a unit of power, while **amperes** (A) is a unit of electric current. To convert amperes to watts, you can use the following formula:

## Amps to Watts Calculator

Power: W

Watts = Amperes x Voltage

Where **Voltage** is measured in volts (**V**).

For example, if you have a current of 5 A and a voltage of 120 V, you can calculate the power in watts using the formula:

Watts = 5 A x 120 V = 600 W

You can also use an online calculator to convert amps to watts by providing the value of amps and voltage.

It’s worth noting that this formula applies to DC (Direct Current) circuits, for AC (Alternating Current) circuits, you need to use the apparent power formula which is:

Apparent Power (S) = Voltage (V) x Current (I)

Where Apparent Power is measured in VA (Volt-Ampere)

## What is Ampere in Electricity

An ampere, often shortened to amp, is the base unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the flow of electric charge through a conductor, such as a wire, with a rate of one coulomb per second.

An ampere is a measure of the amount of electric charge flowing through a circuit. Electric current is the flow of electric charge, and the ampere is the unit used to measure the flow of electric current. The flow of electric current is caused by the movement of electrons through a conductor, such as a wire.

The ampere is a fundamental unit of electrical measurement, just like the meter is a fundamental unit of length and the kilogram is a fundamental unit of mass. It is used to measure the amount of electric current flowing in a circuit and to express the capacity of electrical power sources such as batteries and generators. The ampere is also used to describe the output of electrical devices such as motors and lights.

It’s worth noting that the ampere is often represented by the symbol “A” and is named after French scientist André-Marie Ampère.

## What is Watts and Voltage

**Watts (W)** is the unit of power in the International System of Units **(SI)**. Power is the rate of energy is transferred or converted. In other words, it is a measure of how much energy is used per unit of time.

The watt is defined as the energy transferred or converted per second. It is named after James Watt, the Scottish inventor and engineer who developed the steam engine.

In electrical systems, power is often measured in watts (W) and is equal to the product of the voltage (V) and the current (I) flowing in a circuit. The formula for power is:

Power (W) = Voltage (V) x Current (I)

For example, if a circuit has a voltage of 120 V and a current of 5 A, the power would be:

Power (W) = 120 V x 5 A = 600 W

Watts are also used to express the output of electrical devices such as lights, appliances, and motors. A 100-watt light bulb, for example, uses 100 watts of power when turned on.

It’s worth noting that the watt is also used to describe apparent power in AC (Alternating Current) systems, which is measured in VA (Volt-Ampere). Apparent power is the product of the RMS (Root Mean Square) voltage and the RMS current, it’s the product of the voltage and current that would do the same amount of work as the actual V and I waveform in a given time period.
