**EXPLANATION**

There is a system with, lets say, 10 watt hours of energy available for use.

There is an inverse correlation between how much power we choose to use (energy use per second) and how quickly that systems energy will be completely drained.

The higher the power usage (the quicker we use energy) the lower the time is that it takes to fully drain that system.

For example

WATT/HOUR USED - TIME TILL 100% ENERGY USAGE

1 - 10 hours

5 - 8.75 hours

10 - 7.5 hours

Side note: Our system does replenish energy while work is being done, hence the "curve" on these above numbers.

**QUESTIONS**

1 - Have I explained the above correctly? I'm relatively new to physics terminology.

2 - Is there a term for the correlationship between power used, and how quickly the energy is drained to 100%? Low power usage = long time. High Power usage = short time. How do we measure or communicate this correlationship. For example colloquially how "intensity"... the power is

If there isn't a singular discrete term for this principal then is there another principal in physics that is similar, who's term could be high jacked?

i.e. a principal where 1 variable stays at 100% (energy usage), while 2 other variables have a coorelationship.(power usage vs time).

3 - The fact that the system replenishes even during work...is there a principle, term, or measurment for this?

4 - Is there a principal, term, or measurement if we only want to work until a certain % of energy is used...i.e. use 1 watt hour of power until 70% of the systems energy is sued.

Thanks again for your input, I look forward to learning.
