## Power Per Square Meter Formula

PPSM = P / A

Variables:

- PPSM is the Power Per Square Meter (watts/m^2)
- P is the total power (watts)
- A is the total area (m^2)

To calculate the Power Per Square Meter, divide the total power by the total area.

## How to Calculate Power Per Square Meter?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Power Per Square Meter.

- First, determine the total power (watts).
- Next, determine the total area (m^2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = PPSM = P / A.
- Finally, calculate the Power Per Square Meter.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total power (watts) = 780

total area (m^2) = 123
