  Electric power - Engineering - A Wikia wiki   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Electric power, like mechanical power, is represented by the letter P in electrical equations, and is measured in units called watts (symbol W), after Scottish engineer James Watt [[2]].
Where the waveforms are purely sinusoidal, the power factor is the cosine of the phase angle (φ) between the current and voltage sinusoid waveforms.
Power factor equals unity (1) when the voltage and current are in phase, and is zero when the current leads or lags the voltage by 90 degrees.
