Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was reading Asimov on Physics the other day, and found that a watt is a measure of gm cm^2/s^3. That got me thinking, if voltage times current equals watts, what would voltage and current be a measure of? I have been trying to figure it out for a while, and came up with: current= gm/s and voltage= cm^2/s^2. That is the only way I could make current work, but voltage just doesn't seem right to me.
