- n. The practical unit of electrical activity or power. T he watt is equal to 10 ergs per second, or the same number of absolute c. g. s. units of electrical activity; or it is the rate of working in a circuit when the E. M. F. is one volt and the current oue ampere. One horse-power is equal to 746 watts.
