A 1100 kg object is pulled across a horizontal surface at a constant velocity of 5 m/s. What is the power generated by this force? (Picture includes object being pulled at a 37 degree angle above the horizontal with a Force of 122 N)
Well I thought that power just = force x velocity, so (122)(5) = 610 watts. However I really don't think its that simple. I don't understand how to do any free body diagrams for this problem, though I feel they are needed.
