A 220 volt circuit is fused for 30 amps. How many 60 watt incandescent soft whote light bulbs with tungsten filament burning at 3,0000 celsius can be used at the same time in the circuit without tripping the fuse?

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

(w/220)=30

220=30 amps(w)

220/30 amps=7.33 watts
