More on Power

• Electrical charge goes through a change in potential difference = energy is transferred
• Energy is supplied to the charge at the power source = raise it through a potential
• Charge falls through any potential drop in components = charge gives up energy
• Energy transferred (J) = Charge Flow (C) X Potential Difference (V)
• E=QV
• Bigger potential difference battery = supplies more energy to circuit for every coulomb of charge which flows around it as the charge is raised higher up at the circuit
• Power (W) = Potential Difference (V) X Current (A)
• P=VI
• Power = current squared X resistance
• P= I²R
