# Power

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Power, abbreviated as P or PWR, is the rate of doing work or the rate of using energy per unit time.

### Power Formula

$$\large{ P = \frac {W}{t} }$$

Where:

$$\large{ P }$$ = power

$$\large{ t }$$ = time

$$\large{ W }$$ = work

Solve for:

$$\large{ t = \frac {W}{P} }$$

$$\large{ W = P \; t }$$
