An electric bulb is connected to a 220v generator the current is 0.50A. What is the power of the bulb?


Power is defined as the rate at which work is done upon an object. Power is a time-based quantity. Which is related to how fast a job is done. The SI unit of power is Watt (W) which is joules per second (J/s). The formula for power is mentioned below.

Power = Work / time

P = W / t

The voltage and current of a bulb are given, the power is calculated through the derived formula of Power.

Given as

  • Voltage (V) = 220 V
  • Current (I) = 0.05 A

And we know that

Power = Voltage x Current

p = 220 x 0.05

p = 22 x 0.5

p = 110W
