Someone posted this on the forums a while ago, sorry, I've forgotten who, but I always keep a copy on my desktop for those brain overheating moments

Look at the row marked mili. You will see one miliwatt = 0.001 of a watt. If you have 200 of these, you have 0.200 of a watt, or 0.2watt

In other words 200mW is 0.2W.

Or 200 thousends of a Watt....

Cheers,

200mW = 200 milliwatts = 0.2 watts

which in most cases is not very much power

If you'd asked about 200MW, I'd be more concerned!

little m = milli, or thousanths

Big M + mega, or million

Handy chart! I'm saving it, and printing out a copy to
hang up next to my Ohm's Law Wheel


--Damon, who isn't too big on math either
