Power quiz

This power quiz will help you see if you understand the meaning of power in physics. After completing this quiz, you should be able to clearly see the difference between power and work and become familiar with some of the units used for power. You may need to use a paper and pencil to complete this quiz.

My recommendation is to first read the lesson about what power is in physics and then take this quiz without using a calculator.
