## How to Convert Volts to Amps

Voltage is the potential difference in an electrical circuit, measured in volts. It might be easier to think of it as the amount of force or pressure pushing electrons through a conductor. To convert volts to amps, a measure of current, it’s possible to use a formula defined by Watt’s Law.

Watt’s Law states that current = power ÷ voltage. Power is measured in watts and voltage is measured in volts.

Thus, to find amps substitute the volts and watts in the formula:

Current_{(A)} = Power_{(W)} ÷ Voltage_{(V)}

**For example,**find the amperage of a 100 watt light bulb at 120 volts.

amps = watts ÷ volts

amps = 100 W ÷ 120 V

amps = .83 A

## Convert Volts to Amps using Resistance

Ohm’s Law provides an alternate formula to find volts if amps and the electrical resistance is known. To calculate amps, divide the voltage by the resistance in ohms.

Current_{(A)} = Voltage_{(V)} ÷ Resistance_{(Ω)}

**For example,**let’s find the current of a 12 volt circuit with 10 ohms of resistance.

amps = volts ÷ ohms

amps = 12 V ÷ 10 Ω

amps = 1.2 A
