How do I wire my breaker to get 240v? What wires go where? What kind of breaker do I add?

I have a 16 amp compressor that is 240V next to my box. I was going to run 12/3 rumex cable from my electric breaker box to the compressor. How do I get 240V. I know the basic idea, but I do not know for sure what kind of breaker to put in and what wire goes where on the breaker.
My 12/3 is plus ground. I have a double pole breaker but it's the size of one breaker so it only has one input. Do I need a side by side so I get two inputs?

Get a double pole breaker, so you pull power from both of your 120V legs coming in.

And your wire - Do you mean 12/3 plus ground? Cause for 240V you have (2) hots, (1) neutral, and (1) ground.

12 gauge, 240V will support up to a 60 amp load, though with that kinda of power, I'd be using 8 or 10.

You need a double-sized breaker that has two sets of contacts on the back (the part that actually connects to the power backplane in your elec box).

I need to agree with the other answerer - if you don't understand 150% what you're doing, don't do it. The amount of power inside your panel can kill you in an instant, or cause one hell of a fire/explosion if you wire incorrectly!
