Thanks Pete that helps a lotPeteKnight wrote: ↑Wed Nov 08, 2017 7:52 amIt’s a constant consumption figure. Every second that a 2400w appliance is being used it is drawing 10 amps of current.
In a domestic setting, the only units that are usually time-based are Kilowatt Hours. If you use a 2,400 watt (2.4kw) oven for one hour you’ll have used 2.4 kWh (Kilowatt Hours) of energy. These are the units that your electricity supplier will use on your bill.
The only time that you’d measure amps over time is when you’re looking at battery power capacity when you’d talk about the capacity in Amp Hours. A 10 amp/hour battery can deliver 1 amp for 10 Hours, or 10 amps for 1 hour, but amps over time isn’t something that you’d normally think about in a mains power environment.
Hope this helps.
