## Main Question or Discussion Point

to measure the amount of power drawn by an appliance, can we simply multiply the voltage (V) of the mains by the current (I)drawn (measured using a digital clamp meter) by the appliance to obtain power (P=I x V). does the power company charge us (rate x Power) based of this value P, regardless of whether the electrical load of the appliance is resistive or inductive?

thanks thanks.

thanks thanks.
