Electric power can be measured by what type of instrument?
Wattmeter.
Ammeter.
Ohmmeter.
Capacitance Meter.
Detailed Explanation
A wattmeter is a type of instrument specifically designed to measure the electric power consumed by a device or circuit. It typically consists of voltage and current measuring elements and provides a direct measurement of power in watts. By measuring both voltage and current, a wattmeter can calculate the power consumption accurately, accounting for factors such as power factor in AC circuits.
