It is necessary to understand the exact meaning of all types of electrical ratings. WORK For an object to move, some force must make it move. When electrons flow in a circuit, a force must make them flow. A force produces or tends to produce motion or change in motion.

When 1 ampere exists in a circuit due to a Voltage coil Current coil Figure 6-1 The wattmeter contains two coils—one for voltage and the other for current. Unit 6 Electrical Energy and Power 43 source of 1 volt, 1 watt of power is used in that circuit. In DC circuits, the electrical power in watts can always be found by any of the following formulas in which I represents the number of amperes, R is the number of ohms, and E is the number of volts: Power = I × E 2 Power = E R 2 Power = I × R The kilowatt (kW) is a commonly used unit of electrical power.

Hours = ampere-hours amperes 60 hours = 10 hours = 6 STATE OF CHARGE Discharging a lead-acid battery completely before recharging it is poor practice. A battery should be charged whenever its condition drops below the normal value. The condition of a battery, referred to as its state of charge, is measured by taking a reading of its specific gravity with a battery hydrometer.
