radiant power, P

power emitted, transferred or received as radiation. SI unit is J s-1 = W.
  1. Mathematical definition: P = dQ/dt. If the @R05039@ Q is constant over the time interval, P = Q/t.
  2. In @R05115@, flux  (Φ) is used with the same units as P. The symbol Φ is reserved for @Q04991@ in @P04588@. Therefore, the use of flux (Φ) is not recommended.
