### Re: Why do we still confuse KW and KWH?

Newtonian physics fails to accurately describe the universe in small part because there is no stationary object anywhere. The concept of lack of motion is just an artifact of living on a planetary body. That makes one of the basic assumptions of Newtonian physics false. All motion is relative, and everything is in motion.

All this can be solved quite easily by rating stations by peak amperage.

Funny. That's about all I told my son when he drove off to study for his Phd in physics. I think he was amused but it is a very important concept to keep in mind while driving. Not only for safety's sake but for the longevity of the car itself.
