## How to Convert Amps to Watts

Converting amps to watts can be done using the power formula, which states that I = P ÷ E, where P is power measured in watts, I is current measured in amps, and E is voltage measured in volts.

Using a little algebra it’s possible express the amps to watts formula as:

P_{(W)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)}

Thus, the power *P* in watts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts.

**For example**, find the wattage of 8 amps at 120 volts

power = current × voltage

power = 8A × 120V

power = 960W

## Single-Phase AC Circuit Amps to Watts Conversion

Converting amps to watts for a single-phase AC circuit with power factor requires a slight variation of the formula.

P_{(W)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)} × PF

The power *P* in watts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts multiplied by the power factor PF. We suggest using a power factor calculator to find the PF value.

## Three-Phase AC Circuit Amps to Watts Conversion

### Using Line to Line Voltage

For three-phase AC circuits where the line to line voltage is known, the formula to convert amps to watts is:

P_{(W)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)} × PF × √3

The power *P* in watts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts multiplied by the power factor PF multiplied by the square root of 3.

### Using Line to Neutral Voltage

For three-phase AC circuits where the line to neutral voltage is known, the formula to convert amps to watts is:

P_{(W)} = I_{(A)} × V_{(V)} × PF × 3

The power *P* in watts is equal to the current *I* in amps multiplied by the voltage *V* in volts multiplied by the power factor PF multiplied by 3.

## How to Convert Amps and Ohms to Watts

You can also convert amps to watts using circuit resistance with this formula:

P_{(W)} = I_{(A)}^{2} × R_{(Ω)}

The power *P* in watts is equal to the current *I* in amps squared multiplied by the resistance *R* in ohms.

Since 1 kilowatt is equal to 1,000 watts, it is possible to use the formulas above to also convert amps to kW, but the result will need to be divided by 1,000. You can also use our amps to kW calculator to solve for kilowatts.
