# Electric Power

Power is the rate of energy consumed or produced. One of many ways to transfer energy is through electric power. This power is most commonly described as the following equation:

p(t) = v(t) \times i(t)

Where:

v(t) = voltage drop across a load in volts.

i(t) = current going through a load in amperes.

p(t) = instanteous power absorbed in watts.
