Power Power is the rate at which work is done: • The SI unit of power is Watt: 1 W = 1 J/s • In the case of a constant force dt dW P = ( 29 v F t s d F s F t d t dW P r r r r r r = = = = • Power is something we encounter all the time, because energy is something we pay for. A couple of simple conversions:
