CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Compute electrical power in circuits.

Definition

Computation should include
  • using the same value components that are physically installed in the circuit
  • retaining at least three significant figures (i.e., decimal places) on all measurements
  • reconciling differences between computed and measured values (often attributable to rounding errors).

Process/Skill Questions

  • Why might computed values differ from measured values?
