getting confused about watt vs watt.hour
in the Watt's wiki
page, an example is given on how to calculate wattage (power):
So, (100kg x (9.81m/s2
) x 3m) / 5s = 588 kg.m2
this system needs aroud 600 watts of power to accomplish its task. ok.
Then, lower in the page, an example is given on how to calculate watt.hour(energy):
Now, if I go back to my first example, it's being done in 5 seconds for 588,6 watts
if it was done in 1 second, it would be 2943 watts
if it was done in 3600 seconds, it would be 0,8175 watts
So, if I do the work on a 1 hour (3600 sec) time span, can say I use 0,8175 watt.hour?
And if I lift the thing in 1 second, but constantly, for 1 hour, do I use 2943 watt.hour?
This is confusing me a little, so I guess my question also is a little confused. I looked many places where it was promised that this confusion would evaporate after reading their explanations. Now I'm here because I'm still a little lost.
