Power Velocity
Power velocity, abbreviated as P, is used to determine the power from the applied force and speed of a moving object. Power and velocity are related in the context of physics, particularly in mechanical power. Mechanical power is the rate at which work is done or the rate at which energy is transferred or converted. This equation states that power is equal to the product of force and velocity. In other words, power is the rate at which work is done or the rate at which energy is transferred, and it depends on both the force applied and the velocity of the object. This equation assumes a constant force acting in the direction of motion. In cases where the force or velocity is not constant, the relationship between power and velocity may be more complex and involve calculus, especially if the force varies with time or position.

\( P \) = power | \(W\) | \(kg-m^2 \;/\; s^3\) |
\( F \) = force | \( lbf \) | \( N \) |
\( v \) = velocity | \(ft \;/\; sec\) | \(m \;/\; s\) |
