3
Power the rate at which work is done, or the amount of work per unit of time

4
How to Calculate Power Power = Workor Force*Distance TimeTime Units are defined as a watt (W) or a joule/second

5
Watt the watt is used to express electrical power examples = light bulbs & appliances

6
Watt a 50-watt light bulb does work at a rate of 50 joules per second a 110-watt light bulb has more power than a 50- watt light bulb

7
Kilowatts (kW) large quantities of power are measured in kW 1 kW = 1000 W this is how power in your home is measured

8
