What is kilowatt (kW)?
Kilowatt (symbol: kW) is a unit of electric power.
One kilowatt (kW) is equal to 1000 watts (W):
1kW = 1000W
One kilowatt is defined as energy consumption of 1000 joules for 1 second:
1kW = 1000J / 1s
One kilowatt is equal to 1000000 milliwatts:
1kW = 1000000mW
What is the power consumption in kW when energy of 30000 joules was released during 10 seconds?
P(kW) = 30000J / 10s / 1000 = 3kW
What is the power consumption when consuming 6kWh for 3 hours?
P(kW) = 6kWh / 3h = 2kW
