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

I have to give the power being absorbed by the circuit element. There's a picture. This is an easy problem. They give me the current flow in a function of time, the voltage is also in function of time. The time in which I require to give the power is at 2ms. The function for the current is 8 cos (1000t) mA , and the one for voltage is 4 sin (1000t) V. MY QUESTION IS: Do I insert 2 as the variable for time or do I change 2ms into seconds (.002s) and put it in the function?

Yeah I know this has almost nothing to do with circuits but I hope someone helps me. HW is due tomorrow...
