    Power= Current * Voltage Power=6 A* 120 V=720 watts If the current is drawn for one week Time T= 7*24*3600 seconds= 604800 seconds Energy= Power*Time= 720*604800 Joules or 435,456,000 Joules In kwt= 435,456,000/1000= 435456 kwt

    use power formula, P=VI P=6*120 P=720W then, convert time in seconds from week. t=7*24*3600=604800s E=P*t E=720*604800 E=435456000W then, convert energy in KW (move point three decimal towards left) E=435456KW Regards, Read my Profile. :D
