Expressed powers are powers that are stated in the constitution while implied are vaguely relevant and can be assumed to be stated. The elastic clause grants congress a set of implied powers that are not explicitly named in the constitution, but are assumed to exist because they are necessary to implement the expressed powers named in article 1.

Congress has expressed and implied powers. Expressed are strictly stated powers in the Constitution. Implied powers are derived from the elastic clause of the Constitution.

It grants them the powers that are implied in the constitution, but not specifically stated within it.

The powers forbidden to the US Congress (and Federal Government in general) are listed in the US Constitution in a very simply fashion. Congress is permitted those powers specifically stated (and implied) in the Constitution. Powers not enumerated in the Constitution are reserved for the States, or for the People. So what is permitted to the Congress is listed, but not what is forbidden.

A. through the expressed, or clearly stated, powers, B. through the implied, powers ( powers deducted from the clearly stated powers), C. through the inherent powers, those possessed by all sovereign states.

these powers are also known as the Enumerated Powers in the Constitution

The 10th amendment to the constitution grants all powers not explicitly stated in the constitution to the states or to the people. This means that the federal government has enumerated powers, while the states can enact statutes on more topics.

Alexander Hamilton first of all believed in a strong central Government. He further did hold that the central Government should be empowered to fund and service the national debt and to raise federal taxes and import duties to get the money to do so. Another belief led to his famous "implied powers"-statement, in which he said that the Government - especially the US Congress - did not only have the powers and means explicitly stated in the Constitution, but also the means that these explicitly stated powers implied, in order to get the official powers properly executed.

What Powers of the national goverment that are specifically stated in the US Constitution?

Implied powers are powers that are not expressly stated, but people know they have those powers. They are powers that are not stated in the Constitution.

Enumerated powers are the powers that are specifically stated.

Congressional powers not expressly stated in the Constitution but suggested by the enumerated powers that are written there are called

It is the Necessary and Proper Clause or General Welfare Clause which is also called implied powers of Congress.

It is stated in Article II Section 2 of the Constitution that the president has the powers of pardon and reprieve.

A power given specifically stated in the Constitution are called Reserved Powers. Reserved Powers are given to the Federal Government and Enumerated Powers are given to the states.

Enumerated Powers are those delegated to the federal government by the Constitution. Unenumerated powers are those not stated in the Constitution, and reserved powers are those protected by the 9th and 10th amendments but which are not listed in the Constitution specifically.So Enumerated Powers is the answer you want.

Powers of the president that are clearly stated in the Constitution

The Constitution gives powers to the Congress in three ways:A: through the Expressed Powers, or clearly stated, powers.B: through the Implied Powers, powers (powers deducted from the clearly stated powers)C:Through the Inherent powers, those possessed by all sovereign states.Definition: Expressed Powers-Those delegated powers of the National Government that are spelled out, expressly, in the constitution; also called the "enumerated powers"Definition: Implied Powers-Those delegated powers of the National Government that are suggested by the expressed powers set out in the Constitution.

Congressional powers not expressed are implied powers.

Federalism is never explicitly stated but it is embedded in the US constitution. As a result, power is kept in the states.

It is explicitly stated in the U.S. Constitution under Article I, Section 9.

It's because that is the way they were stated when the states ratified the Constitution, so they can't be stated differently without the states ratifying an amendment to the Constitution.

No they aren't. Implied powers are just that. They are inplied, but not specifically stated.

The powers of the parliament, and hence the government are concentrated in section 51, with a couple mentioned elsewhere in the constitution.
