define average power

If ΔW is the amount of work performed during a period of time of duration Δt, the average power Pavg over that period is given by the formula


P_mathrm{avg} = frac{Delta W}{Delta t},.

It is the average amount of work done or energy converted per unit of time. The average power is often simply called "power" when the context makes it clear.
