Watt (electrical) to Ohm (Resistance)

Postby strategic_ambiguity » Sun Nov 21, 2004 6:38 am

Hello folks.

Came up with a little electrical problem while working on my car.
If any one knows the formula, please let me know.

Ofcourse, Watt to Amp/Volt would help too.

Thank you

You're looking for Watt = Amperage x Voltage (1 watt = 1 Amp x 1 Volt)
combine this with Ohms Law: Voltage = Current x Resistance, and you should be able to get what you need.
