Power - Conversion

Power: In physics, power is the rate at which energy is used, transferred, or transformed. The SI unit of power is the watt (symbol W, in honor of James Watt who is the eighteenth-century developer of the steam engine). One watt is equal to one joule per second (symbol: J/s). Other units for power include horsepower (hp), metric horsepower, ergs per second (erg/s), or cheval vapeur (CV), and foot-pounds per minute. The term power is distinguished from energy, it is the rate at which energy is generated or consumed.
