Apparent Power

Technology / Home Audio / Apparent Power: The result of multiplying the rms value of the voltage by the rms value of the current in an electronic circuit. It is expressed in watts (W) for resistive loads and in voltamperes (VA) for reactive loads. The real power is usually less because of losses when the power factor is accounted.
