n Heating by means of dissipation of electrical energy in resistive circuit elements. The rate of heating (watts, W) is given by the quotient of the square of the voltage drop across the heater (V2) divided by its at-temperature resistance (Ω), also by the product of the voltage drop and the current (VċA).
