## FORMFACTOR

### Form factor

In electronics, the**form factor**of an alternating current waveform is the ratio of the RMS value to the average value . It identifies the ratio of the direct current of equal power relative to the given alternating current. The former can also be defined as the direct current that will produce equivalent heat.
