PIE in your EIR
P power/ watts I intensity/amps E electromotive force/volts
and to find resistance Use EIR R/ohms
A kilo watt is one thousand watts so lets say that you have a 120V (E) systen and 1K watts (P) that would give you a little less than ten amps (I) (watts is called volt amps in an AC system)
Amps times volts is watts
Watts divided by volts is amps
Watts divided by amps is volts
Volts divided by amps is resistance
Volts divided by resistance is amps

Volts times Amps equals Watts. One kilo watt is 1000watts.

If you are using 110 volt electricity then 1000 divided by 110 equals 9.09 amps approximately.

So, if you are using a 1000watt microwave, it is sucking up about nine amps at 110 volts.

Kilo means 1000 so a thousand watts equal one kilo watt.

Wow the way I worded that makes me sound like a hick, but thats basic ohms law.

one 'Kilo' = x1000 of the unit being measured.

Ohm's Law is made from 3 mathematical equations that shows the relationship between electric voltage, current and resistance.
