Ohms law doesnt add up with alternating current. Not your basic triangle chart anyways lot of other factors peak voltage ect.

You are right that it will not work with capacitive or inductive loads.
Yea your right i just tested this with my oven😊 worked like a charm. I do remember messing with this in school with light bulbs and it wouldnt add up. I believe we came to the conclusion bulbs did not actually pull the wats they were rated for. Thanks for the correction

In the field there are many things like instrument error that can make not add up.
