# Power with Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Properties

Power is the rate of doing work or the rate of using energy per unit time.

Abbreviated as $$P$$ or $$P_d$$

## formula

$$P = \frac {F d}{t}$$

Where:

$$P$$ = power

$$F$$ = force

$$d$$ = displacement

$$t$$ = time

Solve for:

$$F = \frac {P t}{d}$$

$$d = \frac {P t}{F}$$

$$t = \frac {F d}{P}$$
