Mechanical Power (Displacement)


Power is the rate at which work is done. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time.
The same amount of work is done when carrying a load up a flight of stairs whether the person carrying it walks or runs, but more power is needed for running because the work is done in a shorter amount of time.
Power in mechanical systems is the combination of forces and movement.
