(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let us now consider several questions that include numeric data.

A sled is being pulled along a horizontal surface by a horizontal force F of magnitude 600 N. Starting from rest, the sled speeds up with acceleration 0.08 m/s^{2}for 1 minute.

Find the instantaneous power P created by force F at t=10s.

Express your answer in watts to three significant figures.

2. Relevant equations

P_{avg}= [tex]\frac{\Delta W}{\Delta t}[/tex]

P = [tex]\frac{dW}{dt}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I have solved for velocity after 10s.

v = 0.8 m/s

I'm stuck at where to go from here.
