a watt is how much power somthing gives. Like a motor may be rated in watts.
746 watts= 1 electric horsepower.
Amps is the current that is being drawn
THe higher the amps being pulled, the faster the current is moving.
Higher amps drain batteries faster. But batts are rated (wet cells) with a mah rating or ah rating. If a batt is rated at 3300mah, the battery will last one hour when 3.3amps are being pulled.
Oh, you didn't ask about batteries. GOt carried awy.

Amps are how many electrons are involved in the movment... voltatage is how hard they are being 'pushed'.

They are not interchangabel; they measure entierly different effects.
Or maybe I should start saying that buildings are "blue" tall.
