Re: SSTC does 10 foot sparks

Because of a typo I used the wording "watts per second" and that wording is
incorrect. I meant watt seconds which is correct wording. However, "watt
seconds per second" would be correct which also means joules per seconds.
However, if you interpret this to be
Watts x seconds / seconds
It is obvious that the "seconds" cancel out and you end up with "watts"
only. It is also obvious that "per" and "/" or "division" are in conflict.
But how about
Joules per second or Joules / seconds
Seconds do not cancel out. Does this mean that
Watts per second do not equal joules per second?
and Watt x seconds do not equal joules?
