## Air Conditioner Current Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Air Conditioner Current.

**Iac= Pac / Vs**

- Where Iac is the Air Conditioner Current (amps)
- Pac is the air conditioner power consumption (watts)
- Vs is the source voltage (volts)

## How to Calculate Air Conditioner Current?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Air Conditioner Current.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the air conditioner power consumption (watts). In this example, the air conditioner power consumption (watts) is measured to be 600.
- Next, determine the source voltage (volts). For this problem, the source voltage (volts) is calculated to be 5.
- Finally, calculate the Air Conditioner Current using the formula above:

Iac= Pac / Vs

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Iac= 600 / 5 = 120 (amps)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

air conditioner power consumption (watts) = 240

source voltage (volts) = 3

Entering these values into the formula above gives :

Iac= 240/ 3 = 80 (amps)
