i assumed a DC circuit, yes i understand power factor and its consideration in AC circuits
however for the sake of a simple discussion of a watt lets stick with DC for now
or at least unity power factor in an AC circuit.
to me, a watt is one volt at one amp, instantaneous measurement
and watt/hour is one volt at one amp for the time period of one hour.
therefore my question remains,
when defining a watt, and using volts and amps in a DC circuit or volts and amps at unity power factor in an AC circuit,
where does the time element come into play.
remember i am talking about a simple watt, not a watt/hour or watt/minute, or a watt/second.
just got my attention, and it has been quite a while so maybe i have forgotten what i once thought i knew?
