(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); SUPER URGENT !!! Power question

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A truck of mass m is accelerated from rest at t=0 with constant power P along a level road

show that the position of the truck is related to its speed by x=(m/3P)v^3

the position of the truck is previously found as:

x=(8P/9m)^{1/2}*t^{3/2}

I also found the v=(2P/m)^{1/2}*t^{1/2}

2. Relevant equations

Integral

3. The attempt at a solution

I have not found anyway to do this problem yet. I tried to to relate v to x by taking the integral of v by integrate (m/3P)v^3 but I am stuck.
