Question 1 A body does 20 joules of work in 5 sec.what is its power?

Question 2 What is the power of a pump which takes 10 sec to lift 100 kg of water tank situated at a height of 20 m?

Question 3 Define the term power?

Question 4 Give the S.I. unit of power?

Question 5 Define the term watt?

Question 6 How many watts equal one horse power?

Question 7 The power output of an engine is 3 KW.How much work does the engine do in 20s?

__Power__

Old man takes 10 min to do particular work whereas young man takes 5 min to do same work.

Power is defined as rate of doing work.

work done

Power=——————

Time taken

W

P=—–

t

Power is work done per unit time.

When work is done,an equal amount of energy is consumed.

The S.I. unit of power is **Watt(W)**

1 watt is the power of an appliance which does work at rate of 1 joules per second.

1 joule

1 Watt=————–

1 Second

1 kilowatt=1000 watt

1KW = 1000 Watt

1 Megawatt=1000000 Watt

Another unit of power is **horsepower(h.p.)**

1 h.p. =746 watt

1 h.p. = 0.746 KW.

The commercial unit of energy is **kilowatt-hour(KWh)**

One KWh is the amount of electrical energy consumed when an electrical appliance having a power rating of 1Kw is used for 1 hr.

1 kilowatt-hour =1000 watts for 1 hour.

1 joule

1 Watt=————–

1 second

1kilowatt-hour = 36,00,000 joule

Watt or Kilowatt hour is unit of electrical power.

** Kilowatt-hour is unit of electrical energy.**

The electrical energy used in homes,shopes,industries is measured in kilowatt-hour(KWh)

1KWh of electrical energy is called as 1 unit of electricity.
