## THINKING CRITICALLYHow much power is consumed by a load drawing 5 A with 120 V across it?

### Explanation of Solution

Given: Load drawing is 5 A with 120 V.

To find:If the load drawn is 5 A with 120 V, then how much power is used.

Solution:

Here,

A represents ampere, which is the unit of current.

V represents volt, which is the unit of voltage.

W represents watt, which is the unit of power.

Now, the formula for the power is:

Powerw=CurrentA×Voltagev=5×120=600 watts

Hence, if the load drawn is 5 A with 120 V then 600 watts will be used.
