%X **Context
and Background:** The product of the electromagnetic (EM) wave＊s
power *P* times its period *而*, *i.e.* *P而*, is the amount of energy conserved
in EM wave＊s absorption in matter. Whether *P而* is the amount of energy conserved in the emission of EM waves from matter is
not assessed. **Motivation:** In this research,
we perform a computational study to explore the ability of *P而* to represent the
amount of energy conserved in EM wave＊s emission from matter. **Hypothesis:** Since the magnitude of the power *P* of
emitted EM waves computed through Larmor＊s formula for a rotating dipole is
excessively small, we alternatively hypothesize that *P而* and the law of conservation of energy can lead to a realistic
estimation of *P*. **Methods:** We
estimate the power *P*_{AME} of
the anomalous microwave emission (AME), a well-characterized radiation
generated in the interstellar medium (ISM) by spinning dust grains, and one possible source of contamination of the cosmic
microwave background (CMB). For our estimation of
