Cooking ranges are generally only a 30 AMP circuit, therefore you would need number 10 gauge Wire. If the range is a 50 Amp cook top then you will need Number 8 gauge wire.
The formula to use is Watt / Volts = amps.
Below is a wire sizing chart to help.
This chart refers to copper wire and not Aluminum.

### Keeps blowing internal breaker

The unit rated at 3 HP at 115 volts draws 13.8 amps is odd, a HP in watts is 745 and should be about 2200 watts and 19 amps plus a efficiency loss. Odd to see the ratings don't jive with electric theory/formulas.
The compressor should be connected directly to the wall and if using an extension cord, the cord needs to be #12 AWG or larger to avoid line voltage loss and over amping of the motor.
My bottom line is, A 115V motor circuit needs 10 amperes per horse power or 30 amp circuit for 3 horse power. Using extension cords calls for upgrade in wire gage of the cord. The advantage of using 230 volts is it cuts the amperes in half and allows use of smaller gage wire. Watts, or volt amperes is the product of volts and amps.

All the information you need is in your text :>)

Volts, Amp Watts To determine the wattage, use a simple multiplication formula. The ampere (or amps) is the amount of electricity used. Voltage measures the force or pressure of the electricity. The number of watts is equal to amps multiplied by volts.

### Source coil

the formula P=EX I will guide you to use the next formulas:

2. Voltage and Turns in Coil:
Voltage (p) x Turns (s) = Voltage (s) x Turns (p)
or Ep x Ts = Es x Ip

A. Ep = Es x Ip
Ts

B. Ts = Es x Tp
Ep

C. Tp = Ep x Ts
Es

D. Es = Ep x Ts
Tp

3. Amperes and Turns in Coil:
Amperes (p) x Turns (p) = Amperes (s) x Turns (s)
or Ip x Tp = Is x Ts

A. Ip = Is x Ts
Tp

B. Tp = Is x Ts
Ip

C. Ts = Ip x Tp
Is

D. Is = Ip x Tp
Ts

### What size breaker does the sm-11 require 2-30amp or 2-60 amp?

You will need the 2-60A breakers. 11kw is 11,000 watts. Watts = voltage X Current (amperes) If we take this formula and change it around to calculate amperes it is like this. Amperes = watts / volts amperes = 11000 watts / 240 volts This is 45.8 amperes or let us say 46 amperes. The closest breaker that you have would be a 50 amp breaker 2 pole of course . 2 - 50. If you cannot get a 2 - 50 then a 2-60 is fine. I would run with a #6 copper wire, I would check with local code to verify the wire size in your area. Make sure that the unit is grounded as well. Minimum of a #10 wire, I would also check local codes as well. Enjoy the steam!

### How many watts does a 59516-751 model require to run?

Simple Answer is just to know two formulas

Ohm's Law
V = IR

Power
P = IV

From those you can calculate voltage, amps, watts, ohms

V = Voltage (volts)
I = Current (amps or amperes)
R = Resistance (ohm's)
P = Power (watts)

Just solve for what you are missing.

Voltage times amps being drawn shows watts produced.
Watts divided by voltage shows amps being drawn or watts
divided by amperage shows voltage applied.

### Is there a formula for standard deviation problems

Hello,
Of course there are formulas for those calculations. You find them in books on statistics. Do not worry, the calculator has been programmed to use them. All you have to do is learn how to get the calculator to give you the results.

If you still want to see the formulas with your very eyes, I suggest you go to the local library, ask a math teacher, an accountant, or launch a Google search for them.
Hope it helps.

### Checking power consumption

you need a clamp on amp probe, a multimeter wont hack it. if you can get a amp probe, you first seperate the wires on your cord and then place the probe over one of the wires only this will give you your consumption. by the way, your approx usage of watts on a 26 inch lcd tv would be 160 watts. models do vary.
