**Draw graphs??**

## Homework Statement

A stone of a mass of 5kg drops through a distance of 15m under the influence of gravity. Draw graphs of the work done by the stone and the power of the stone as a function of time. Discuss your results.

## Homework Equations

Work=(force)(displacement)

Power=(work)/(time) or Power=(Force)(velocity)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok, so I solved for work

work= (5kg)(9.8m/s^2)(15m)=735J

I don't know what to do now. I would think I need to plot Force on the Y axis, and displacement on the X axis, but I'm not sure.

I'm having the same issue with the second graph

Power=(735J)/(??) The problem says to graph power of the stone as a function of time, so I'm guesing I have to use the power equation that involves time. Can I use Power=(Force)(velocity)? I'm so confused! Help please!
