## How do you calculate amps on a motor?

Given horsepower and volts, it is possible to calculate amps. The calculation of amps uses Ohm’s Law, which is amps times volts equals watts. Multiply the horsepower by 746 watts. For example, an engine at two horsepower with 230 volts would be calculated as two horsepower times 746 watts, which equals 1492.

## How do I calculate current?

The current is the ratio of the potential difference and the resistance. It is represented as (I). The current formula is given as I = V/R. The SI unit of current is Ampere (Amp).
