Find the power input of a force vector F acting on a particle that moves with a velocity vector v for each of the following situations.

(a) vector F = 4 N i hat + 3 N k hat , vector v = 9 m/s i hat

2. Relevant equations

P = F * V

3. The attempt at a solution

P =(4*9) +3

Also tried

P = SQRT(4^2+3^2) * 9

I guess the problem is I don't know how to convert the vector 4i+3j into a force.
