## How do you convert HP to amps?

How to Convert Horsepower to Amps

1. Amps = (Horsepower × 746) ÷ Efficiency ÷ Volts.
2. Watts = Horsepower × 746.
3. Watts = Wattsη
4. Amps = Watts ÷ Volts.
5. Amps = HP × 746V × η × PF.

## How much current does a motor draw?

Calculate the amps used by dividing the wattage by the voltage. For example a 500-watt motor — running on 50 volts — will draw 10 amps. A motor with the same wattage — running on 20 volts — will use 25 amps. This is the theoretical number of amps used by the motor.

## How many amps can A 20 amp breaker handle?

The standard for most household circuits are rated either 15 amps or 20 amps. An important note to remember is that circuit breakers can only handle about 80% of their overall amperage. That means a 15-amp circuit breaker can handle around 12-amps and a 20-amp circuit breaker can handle about 16 amps.

## What size breaker do I need for A 21 amp motor?
