Calculate the demand load (in VA) of the dryers for and apartment building that has 12 units and 1 public unit (13 meters). The 12 units all have 5kw dryers and the public unit has 2 2kw dryers.

Answer: Table 220.54 Demand Factors for Household Electric Clothes Dryers

I have a total of 14 dryers so my demand factor is 47-(14-11) which equals 44%

(12 dryers X 5000w X 44%)+(2 dryers X 2000w X 44%) = 28160w

What do I do next to convert it to volt amps? 28160 wasn't one of the answers
