Power - math problems

Power is the amount of work done (energy supplied) per unit time. In physics, power is the amount of energy transferred or converted per unit time. In the SI units, the unit of power is the watt, equal to one joule per second. Other units are, for example, 1 hp (one horsepower; 1 hp = 735.5 W) and then derived units such as kW - kilowatt.
