What are The Difference Between Volt and WattWritten by: 110220volts Published by: 110220volts Copyright holder: 110220volts on
Watt:As watt refers to the real power so it can be defined as the power that performs work or generates heat. Power in watts is the rate at which energy is consumed (or generated). One watt is one joule (energy) per second (1 W = 1 J/s).
As it is defined as the apparent power in VA so is being used to simplify power ratings, making it easier to calculate current drawn. Since VA = RMS volts x RMS amps, RMS (Root mean square) we can divide the VA rating by RMS voltage to get the RMS current the device will draw.
The remaining explanation required about the topic (power outlet) provided in this link has been discussed in the above topic.
