Power

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

power bannerPower ( \(PWR\) ) is the rate of doing work or the rate of using energy per unit time.

Power Formula

\(\large{ P = \frac {W}{t}   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ P }\) or \(\large{ P_w }\) = power

\(\large{ W }\) = work

\(\large{ t }\) = time

Solve for:

\(\large{ W = Pt }\)

\(\large{ t = \frac {W}{P}  }\)
