A microwave is consuming 800 W power using a standard North American 120 V power supply. What is the approximate amount of current flowing?

A 7 amperes
Explaination
The formula for finding electrical power is Power = Voltage x Current or $9999_w62_h12.png$. Rearranged we have $7716_w195_h38.png$ amperes
B 3 amperes
C 5 amperes
D 9 amperes
