Hard to tell just where this thread is leading, if indeed anywhere. It seems to have long gaps between responses.

But just in case anyone is reading at some future time, I would like to correct the power equation quoted above.

Power equals volts times amps (P=V x I, P in Watts, V in volts, I in amps, no matter if you use V or E for voltage)

Volts = I x R (Ohms law, R in ohms)

so Power = V x I = I x R x I or V = I x I x R or I squared times R.

Apologies to all who know this already. I would just hate some future explorer to be mislead!

Hope the Murray trip is still happening.

Perhaps the above was the trick ” fact” included to see if anyone was reading. Well, I fell for it!
