Enter the total cost of power ($), the wattage usage (watts), and the time (hrs) into the Wattage Price Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Wattage Price.

## Wattage Price Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Wattage Price.

**WP = CP / (W*T)**

- Where WP is the Wattage Price ($/Whr)
- CP is the total cost of power ($)
- W is the wattage usage (watts)
- T is the time (hrs)

## How to Calculate Wattage Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Wattage Price.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the total cost of power ($).
- The total cost of power ($) is given as 4,000.

- Next, determine the wattage usage (watts).
- The wattage usage (watts) is calculated as: 500.

- Next, determine the time (hrs).
- The time (hrs) is found to be: 2.

- Finally, calculate the Wattage Price using the formula above:

WP = CP / (W*T)

Inserting the values from above yields:

WP = 4000/ (500*2) = 4.00 ($/Whr)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total cost of power ($) = 50

wattage usage (watts) = 29

time (hrs) = 120

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

WP = CP / (W*T) =** **($/Whr)
