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?
1200 W.
600 W.
1080 W.
1191 W.
Detailed Explanation
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.
