Homework Help: Simple Power/Work problem

  1. Sep 8, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the power being exerted by a force of 1000. N on a car traveling at 30. m/s? (Assume that force and speed are in the same direction, and treat all numbers as positive.)

    2. Relevant equations
    Power = J/s
    Work =F*d

    I got it. Since a Joule is a N*m, and Power is a N*m/s; I just multiple the 1000N by 3m/s to get the power. Thanks brain!
