## What is Power

We have studied in last class that

Rate of Doing Work is called Power

Power = Work Done/Time Taken

It is measured in Joule per second

**
Example
**

Suppose 20 Joules of work is done in 4 seconds

Power =Work Done/Time Taken

=20 Joules/4 Seconds

= 5 Joules/Second

## What is Electric Power

Rate at which electric energy is consumed in a electrical circuit

Power = VI

## How is Power Formula Derived

## What is SI unit of Power

It is Watt

1 Watt = 1 Volt × 1 Ampere

1 watt is power generated by Electrical Device when

When an electrical appliance is operated at Potential Difference Of 1 Volt and a current of 1A flows through it.

##

Different formulas for Calculating Power

## What is Commercial Unit of Electric Power

It is measured in Kilowatt Hour (KWh)

Kilowatt hour

1 Kilowatt hour = 1000 Watt × 3600 Second

1 Kilowatt hour = 3600000 Watt Second

1 Kilowatt hour = 3.6 × 10
