Electrical units definitions
We are going to define these electrical units (amperes, volts and watts) by imagining the electric current as the water that flows through a pipe. It it is often called electronic–hydraulic analogy.
Ampere or amp
Ampere measures the electrical current, the current represents the speed at which the electricity flows. Ampere would be the volume of water that flows through the pipeline per second. Ampere would be used to measure how fast the water flows through the pipeline. Ampere is often shortened to "amp".
Volt measures the voltage, volts represent the electrical potential difference. Volts would be the water pressure difference across the pipe. The greater the pressure the greater the voltage.
Watt measures the electrical power. Wattage corresponds to the amount of energy that an electric device uses per second. Watts would be the power the water could provide, for example to a mill wheel.
Ohms is a unit of electrical resistance, the greater the resistense the more difficult it is for current to flow. Using the electronic–hydraulic analogy, we coud say that a pipe having a diameter of 10 inches would have a smaller resistance than a pipe of one inch.
Electrical Calculation Formulas
Watt calculation / conversion formulas:
Formulas to calculate watts from volts, amps and ohms.
watts = volts² / ohms
watts = amps² * ohms
watts = volts * amps
Volt calculation / conversion formulas:
Formulas to calculate volts from watts, amps and ohms.
volts = √ watts * ohms
volts = watts / amps
volts = amps * ohms
Amp calculation / conversion formulas:
Formulas to calculate amps from watts, volts and ohms.
amps = volts / ohms
amps = watts / volts
amps = √ watts / ohms
Ohms calculation / conversion formulas:
Formulas to calculate ohms from watts, amps and volts.
ohms = volts / amps
ohms = volts² / watts
ohms = watts / amps²
