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

A skydiver is falling at a terminal velocity of 45 metres per second. If her weight is 700N, at what rate is gravity doing work on her?

2. Relevant equations

P = W / t

P = F * (d/t) = f*v

v = d/t

w = F * d

3. The attempt at a solution

Pretty confused at this question, this is all i got:

v = 45m/s

p = 45 * 700 = 31500

31500 = 700 * (d/t)

thats about it, i'm not even sure if i'm on the right track.

PS, sorry for asking such a newbie question hope someone can help, thanks...
