Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im trying to calculate the power of a pulse. I know the duration of the pulse t in seconds and I know the peak current Ipeak in Amps. If need be I can also calculate the resistance R of the conductor. I know of P=RI^2 but am not sure if this holds for pulses.

Help/Tips/Suggestions

Thanks.
