A motorcycle (mass of cycle plus rider = 245 kg) is traveling at a steady speed of 29.1 m/s. The force of air resistance acting on the cycle and rider is 161 N. Find the power necessary to sustain this speed if (a) the road is level and (b) the road is sloped upward at 33.7° with respect to the horizontal.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i got that the initial KE is 1.04E5 and i know i need the final KE so i get get the Work and then divide it by the change in time to get the power... but im not sure how to go about that... help!!! please! thanks
