SI unit of Power
Power can be defined as the amount of work completed in a given amount of time. Watt (W), which is derived from joules per second (J/s), is the SI unit of power. The rate at which work is performed on an object is referred to as its power. Power is a temporal concept. It has to do with how quickly a task gets completed. The power equation is described below.
Power = Work / time
P = W / t
One horsepower is equal to how many watts? (a) 750 watts (b) 1000 watts (c) 500 watts (d) 746 watts
746 watts are required to produce one horsepower. Power is measured in horsepower which was a device by James Watt. Watts became the recognized SI unit of power in 1960.
