## Capacitor Power Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Capacitor Power.

Pc = Ic * Vc

- Where Pc is the Capacitor Power (watts)
- Ic is the current running through the capacitor (amps)
- Vc is the voltage running through the capacitor (volts)

To calculate the capacitor power, multiply the current running through the capacitor by the voltage running through the capacitor.

## How to Calculate Capacitor Power?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Capacitor Power.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the current running through the capacitor (amps). In this example, the current running through the capacitor (amps) is measured to be 245.
- Next, determine the voltage running through the capacitor (volts). For this problem, the voltage running through the capacitor (volts) is calculated to be 4.
- Finally, calculate the Capacitor Power using the formula above:

Pc = Ic * Vc

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Pc = 245* 4 = 980 (watts)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

current running through the capacitor (amps) = 401

voltage running through the capacitor (volts) = 55

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

Pc = 401 * 55 = 22055 (watts)
