A circuit with a 120-volt power supply is protected by a 10-amp circuit breaker. What is the largest number of watts loads on this circuit can safely use?

A 1200 W
Explaination
Wattage is current multiplied by voltage: W = IV. So, the maximum amount of power a 120-volt circuit with a 10A circuit breaker would allow is 120 * 10 = 1200 W.
B 600 W
C 1080 W
D 1191 W
