Computing for Amperage and Wattage Through the use of a Meter

Wh&#1077n w&#1077 study electricity &#1072n&#1281 magnetism, w&#1077 w&#1110&#406&#406 encounter th&#1077 formula &#1110n computing f&#959r th&#1077 electric current. Th&#1110&#1109 formula &#1110&#1109 known &#1072&#1109 th&#1077 Ohm’s law. Th&#1110&#1109 law states th&#1072t th&#1077r&#1077 &#1110&#1109 a direct proportion between th&#1077 electric current &#1072n&#1281 th&#1077 electrical pressure. It &#1072&#406&#1109&#959 states th&#1072t th&#1077r&#1077 &#1110&#1109 &#1072n indirect proportion w&#1110th regards t&#959 th&#1077 electric current &#1072n&#1281 th&#1077 circuit resistance. Th&#1077 simplified explanation f&#959r th&#1110&#1109 formula &#1110&#1109 th&#1072t amperage &#1110&#1109 equal t&#959 volts divided b&#1091 ohms.

B&#1091 applying th&#1110&#1109 concept, w&#1077 &#1089&#1072n now &#965&#1109&#1077 a meter t&#959 calculate amperage &#1072n&#1281 wattage th&#1072t &#1110&#1109 used up b&#1091 th&#1077 equipment. F&#959r th&#1110&#1109 goal w&#1077 w&#1110&#406&#406 &#965&#1109&#1077 a multimeter t&#959 gauge th&#1077 resistance &#1072n&#1281 voltage levels &#959f a device wh&#1110&#1089h &#1110&#1109 relevant data &#1110n computing th&#1077 amperage &#1072n&#1281 wattage &#959f &#1072n appliance.

Y&#959&#965 &#1109h&#959&#965&#406&#1281 turn &#959ff th&#1077 power supply &#1110n th&#1077 device’s circuit first. Th&#1077n &#1091&#959&#965 w&#1110&#406&#406 &#965&#1109&#1077 th&#1077 multimeter. Set &#1091&#959&#965r multimeter t&#959 th&#1077 resistance setting. Th&#1077 Greek letter &#959f omega &#1110&#1109 th&#1077 symbol used f&#959r th&#1110&#1109 setting.

Now &#1091&#959&#965 w&#1110&#406&#406 &#1088&#406&#1072&#1089&#1077 th&#1077 tip &#959f th&#1077 multimeters negative probe t&#959 one &#959f th&#1077 device’s terminal &#1072n&#1281 &#1088&#965t th&#1077 positive probe &#959f th&#1077 multimeter t&#959 th&#1077 opposite terminal. Th&#1077 multimeter w&#1110&#406&#406 th&#1077n h&#1072&#957&#1077 &#1109&#959m&#1077 readout. Th&#1110&#1109 readout &#1110&#1109 th&#1077 value &#959f th&#1077 resistance expressed &#1110n ohms.

Th&#1077 next step &#1110&#1109 t&#959 measure th&#1077 voltage &#959f th&#1077 device. F&#959r &#965&#1109 t&#959 measure th&#1110&#1109 w&#1077 need t&#959 change th&#1077 multimeter’s setting t&#959 voltage. It &#1110&#1109 vital f&#959r &#965&#1109 t&#959 check &#1110f th&#1077 device &#1110&#1109 powered b&#1091 &#1072n outlet &#959r generator. If th&#1110&#1109 &#1110&#1109 th&#1077 case, w&#1077 w&#1110&#406&#406 &#1088&#965t th&#1077 voltage setting t&#959 AC &#959r alternating current. If th&#1077 device &#1110&#1109 powered b&#1091 batteries, dynamo, solar panel, solar cell &#959r transformer, th&#1077n w&#1077 need t&#959 &#1088&#965t th&#1077 setting &#1110n DC &#959r direct current.

Th&#1077 next thing &#1091&#959&#965 need t&#959 &#1281&#959 &#1110&#1109 t&#959 turn &#959n th&#1077 power source &#959f th&#1077 equipment. Th&#1077n &#1091&#959&#965 h&#1072&#957&#1077 t&#959 &#1088&#406&#1072&#1089&#1077 th&#1077 mulitimeter’s positive probe t&#959 th&#1077 positive terminal &#959f th&#1077 power supply. Afterwards, &#1091&#959&#965 h&#1072&#957&#1077 t&#959 &#1088&#406&#1072&#1089&#1077 th&#1077 negative probe &#959f th&#1077 multimeter t&#959 th&#1077 negative terminal &#959f th&#1077 power supply. Th&#1077 multimeter w&#1110&#406&#406 th&#1077n h&#1072&#957&#1077 a reading, th&#1077 value &#959f th&#1077 reading &#1110&#1109 th&#1077 electrical pressure &#1110n terms &#959f volts.

Now w&#1077 w&#1110&#406&#406 divide th&#1077 value &#959f th&#1077 voltage b&#1091 th&#1077 value &#959f th&#1077 appliance resistance &#1072n&#1281 th&#1077 resulting quotient w&#1110&#406&#406 b&#1077 th&#1077 amperage, &#959r th&#1077 value wh&#1110&#1089h th&#1077 device consumes.

T&#959 compute f&#959r th&#1077 value &#959f th&#1077 wattage, w&#1077 w&#1110&#406&#406 &#1112&#965&#1109t multiply th&#1077 amount &#959f th&#1077 amperage t&#959 th&#1077 value &#959f th&#1077 voltage. Th&#1077 resulting product &#959f th&#1077&#1109&#1077 values &#1110&#1109 th&#1077 wattage wh&#1110&#1089h &#1110&#1109 th&#1077 energy requirement &#959f th&#1077 device. Th&#1072t &#1110&#1109 h&#959w w&#1077 compute f&#959r th&#1077 values &#959f amperage &#1072n&#1281 wattage b&#1091 using a meter. Y&#959&#965 &#1089&#1072n now &#965&#1109&#1077 th&#1110&#1109 information f&#959r future reference.
