What is the total energy dissipated as heat in a resistor of resistance R = 80.0 Ω when a current of I = 0.09 A passes through it for 1 minute?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

From the given values I can work out the potential difference, but I'm stuck here because I don't know what formula to use with energy in it. But I know that electric power can be found from P=IV=I^{2}R, but I don't know how this helps to find energy. Of course I know that [tex]P=\frac{dU}{dt}[/tex], but I don't see how to solve for the energy...
