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

Power Formula

\(\large{ P = \frac {W}{t}   }\)


\(\large{ P }\) = power

\(\large{ t }\) = time

\(\large{ W }\) = work

Solve for:

\(\large{ t = \frac {W}{P}  }\)

\(\large{ W = P \; t }\)
