How to convert watt hours to watt seconds (Wh to Ws)
The formula for converting watt hours to watt seconds is: Ws = Wh × 3600. To calculate the watt hour value in watt seconds first substitute the watt hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt hour in watt seconds we follow these steps:
Ws = Wh × 3600
Ws = 1 × 3600
Ws = 3600
In other words, 1 watt hour is equal to 3600 watt seconds.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 watt hours to watt seconds is:
- Understand the conversion formula: Ws = Wh × 3600
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for Wh so the formula becomes: Ws = 2 × 3600
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 3600 = 7200 Ws
In summary, 2 watt hours is equal to 7200 watt seconds.
Converting watt seconds to watt hours
In order to convert the other way around i.e. watt seconds to watt hours, you would use the following formula: Wh = Ws × 0.0002777778. To convert watt seconds to watt hours first substitute the watt second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt second in watt hours we follow these steps:
Wh = Ws × 0.0002777778
Wh = 1 × 0.0002777778
Wh = 0.0002777778
Or in other words, 1 watt second is equal to 0.0002777778 watt hours.
