# What's the overall power consumption of a piece of equipment that is rated for 2 amps at 140 volts?

280W

Explanation

Power is measured in watts (W) and 1 watt equals 1 ampere multiplied by 1 volt: $$P=V\times I$$. For this problem, the equipment is rated for 2 amps (I) at 140 volts (V) so the equation becomes $$P=140\times 2 = 280W$$
