I am specifying power on a block. Can I specify the power to the volume as well as to the faces?

Yes, you can specify power at one or more places. However, they are additive, so, the total power specified to the block is the sum of all powers specified to the volume and faces of the block.

If specified on a surface, the power is distributed from that surface in both directions based on thermal resistance. If specified in the solid, the power is distributed volumetrically.
