# What is power? Write its SI unit.

Answer :

Power is defined as the rate of doing work. It is the ratio of the work done (W) and the time taken (t).

Power (P) =

The __S.I unit of the power is Watt (W)__ in honour of the physicist James Watt.

Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - PhysicsIn an experiment to measure his power, a student records the time taken by him in running in a flight of steps on a staircase. Use the following data to calculate the power of the student:

Number of steps = 28

Height of each step = 20 cm

Time taken = 5.4 s

Mass of student = 55 kg

Acceleration = 9.8 m s^{-2}
