Enter the voltage (volts), the current (amps), and the time (seconds) into the calculator to determine the Electrical Work. 

Electrical Work Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Electrical Work.

We = V*I*t
  • Where We is the Electrical Work (Joules)
  • V is the voltage (volts) 
  • I is the current (amps) 
  • t is the time (seconds) 

To calculate electrical work, multiply the voltage, current, and time together.

How to Calculate Electrical Work?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Electrical Work.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the voltage (volts). In this example, the voltage (volts) is given as 75 .
  2. Next, determine the current (amps). For this problem, the current (amps) is given as  6 .
  3. Next, determine the time (seconds). In this case, the time (seconds) is found to be 3.
  4. Finally, calculate the Electrical Work using the formula above: 

We = V*I*t

Inserting the values from above and solving yields: 

We = 75*6*3 = 1350 (Joules)

Example Problem #2

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as:

voltage (volts) = 5

current (amps) = 96

time (seconds) = 8

Enter these given values yields: 

We = 5*96*8 = 3840 (Joules)
