Watts = volts x amperes
Amperes = watts ÷ volts
So, a 60 watt headlight bulb on a 12 volt circuit draws 5 amps.
Watt is the unit of electrical power
Volt is the unit of electrical force
Amp is the unit for the rate of flow of the electrons (6.241 × 1018th power per second), named for André-Marie Ampère
