Not just electric power

When it comes to the watt, most people probably think of electric power. However, it is in fact a unit that expresses “power (workrate)” and “rate of production”. In other words, it expresses how hard one is working. In the case of electric power, it expresses the “workrate and production rate” of electricity.
