Enter the total energy dissipated from point 1 to point 2 and the total time that has passed into the calculator to determine the energy dissipation rate.

## Energy Dissipation Rate Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Energy Dissipation Rate.

E = TED / T

• Where E is the Energy Dissipation Rate (J/s)
• TED is the total amount of energy dissipated from point 1 to point 2 (J)
• T is the total amount of time (s)

To calculate the Energy Dissipation Rate, divide the total amount of energy dissipated by the total amount of time.

## What is an Energy Dissipation Rate?

Definition:

An energy dissipation rate is the amount of energy per unit time that a system can dissipate.

## How to Calculate Energy Dissipation Rate?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Energy Dissipation Rate.

First, determine the total amount of energy dissipated. In this case, the system dissipated 500 Joules.

Next, determine the total amount of time. This is found to be 20 seconds for this example,

Finally, calculate the energy dissipation rate using the formula above:

E = TED / T

E = 500 / 20

E = 25 J/s
