I(current) = Watts / Volts

?(I) = 1000 / 120

?(I) = 1000 / 220

Using ohms law, if you have a 1000 watt hair dryer using 120 volts of

electricity that would result in 8.3 amps of current.

Increasing the voltage to 220 would result in 4.5 amps of current, making

voltage inversive to current. and vis-versa

Wrong. You are thinking about the power formula P = I X E

If you were to apply 220 volts to your 110 volt hairdryer, you would (for a

brief amount of time) have 16.66 amps and be producing 4000 watts of heat.

Shortly thereafter, the "magic smoke" would come out, and your hair dryer would

be toast. Current is proportional to voltage and always has been. Read up on

George Ohm's theory.

What you are trying to say is that a 220 volt 1000 watt heater will have half

the current (and twice the resistance) of a 110 volt 1000 watt heater. (P = I X

E) but I is still proportional to E.
