Formula: Electric Power

Joule heating: resistors heat up to different extents

Electric power

Electric power is the energy emitted / absorbed by a circuit per second, for example.

Electric current

Electric current (charges per time) flowing through a conductor, for example in a circuit. If you double the current, the power converted is quadrupled.

Electrical Resistance

Electrical resistance impedes the flow of electrically charged particles in a conductor. If the current \(I\) is kept constant, the larger the resistance, the larger the power converted. The spot with the greatest resistance becomes the warmest.
