What is Power?
In physics, power is the rate at which work is done. It is the amount of energy transferred or converted per unit time. In the International System of Units (SI), the unit of power is the watt, equal to one joule per second.
Power is a scalar quantity, meaning that it has only magnitude and no direction. It is often represented by the symbol P. The formula for power is:
