An SI-derived unit of power equal to one joule per second. See Table at measurement.
[After James Watt.]
(Biography) James. 1736–1819, Scottish engineer and inventor. His fundamental improvements to the steam engine led to the widespread use of steam power in industry
(Units) the derived SI unit of power, equal to 1 joule per second; the power dissipated by a current of 1 ampere flowing across a potential difference of 1 volt. 1 watt is equivalent to 1.341 × 10–3 horsepower. Symbol: W
[C19: named after James Watt]
the SI unit of power, equivalent to one joule per second and equal to the power in a circuit in which a current of one ampere flows across a potential difference of one volt. Abbr.: W, w
[1882; after J. Watt]
James, 1736–1819, Scottish engineer and inventor.
A unit used to measure power, equal to one joule of work per second. In electricity, a watt is equal to the amount of current (in amperes) multiplied by the amount of potential (in volts).
1. The unit of power: one watt equals one joule per second.
2. (W) A unit of power equal to that available when one joule of energy is expended in one second. 1 W = 1 volt-ampere; 746 W = 1 horsepower (hp). Named after the Scottish engineer James Watt (1736–1819).
