And now, for something totally different...
< End Python Mode >
Just for fun, do the P=IÃ—E thing with an AC load having 0.83334 Lagging Power Factor; however, the figure "P" will reflect the Apparent Power (Volt-Amps), as applied to NJ's True Power example:
that does not make sence i am tring to find the amps? say for ex. i have 10 fixtures with 100 watt bulbs that total ='s 1,000 watts so if i need to know how many amps that draws i divide that by the voltage (120) therefor my answer would be 8.3 would this be correct?
...No need to do the calcs, I just felt a little cocky...
...must have one hand in one pocket!
(totally old and semi rude joke).
Threw the VA
thing in as a "semi-subtile" reminder of True Power
vs. Apparent Power
figures on AC systems.
I'll return you now to your regularly scheduled Program, already in progress.
