Heating Effect of Electric Current and Electrical Power

Heating Effect of Electric Current
When charge (electron) move through conductor ,collide with atoms of the conductors due to resistance  and transfer energy to the conductor which appear  as  heat .
Hence work done by electron to overcome resistance is equal to heat generated in conductors.
Let W work done to move Q charge through a conductor of resistance R that appear as Heat
W = H
But , V = W/Q Þ  W = Q V
Þ H = QV
But, I = Q /t  Þ Q = It
\ H = V I t
 Also, V = IR
Þ H = It x IR
Þ H =I2Rt

Electrical Power:
The rate of doing work in moving charge through conductors
OR, The rate of producing heat in conductor
Or, Rate of producing electrical Energy
P = W/ t
OR, P = H/t         
But, H =I2Rt
P = I2Rt /t      Þ  P = I2R
Also we may express Power as
P = I x I x R
Using V =IR
P = VI
SI unit of POWER
P = H/t = 1J/1Sec = Watt
If 1oule energy consumed by device in 1 sec Its power said to be 1 watt
Commercial electrical Energy unit is kWh
We know that P = H/t Þ  H = Pt
If 1 kW (1000watt) energy consumed for 1 hour It is called 1unit(BOT unit)
Energy in term of joule:
H = 1kWh  = 1000W x 3600sec =1000J/sec x 3600sec = 3.6 x 106 j
