The Rate of Conversion of Electrical Energy in Components of Electrical Circuits, as Heat and Light (P=VI and E=Pt)

What is the rate of conversion of electrical energy in components of electric circuits?

In Prelim Physics, we investigate quantitatively and analyse the rate of conversion of electrical energy in components of electric circuits, including the production of heat and light, by applying P = VI and E=Pt and variations that involve Ohm’s Law.

 

The following two videos cover electric power and the rate conversion of electrical energy in components of electric circuits as heat and light.
