I'm revising some electrical curriculum for a technical training program. In the curriculum students have to calculate values using Ohm's law and the equation Power = Current * Voltage (or P = IV).
Some of my coworkers, who do not have science backgrounds, have started calling the equation P = IV "Watt's Law." When I told my co-worker it was appropriate to call P = IV the power equation she told me I was crazy and "everyone is calling it Watt's Law" according to her internet research.
Am I going crazy? I've only every heard P= IV referred to as the power equation (as it applies to circuits). I've never used the term "Watts Law" in the 10+ years I've been studying and teaching physics. An if I were to call something Watts law it would be in reference to content in an energy unit not an electricity unit.
