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

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.
