    1. Power is just the energy rate. So that would be 5000J/20s = 250W

    2. Same. 1500J/30s = 50W

    3. Same. 1200W or 1.2KW

    4. 1500W or 1.5KW

    5. Energy = F*d = 2000N * 1000m = 2000KJ

    2000KJ/(45min*60) (convert to seconds) = 0.741KW or 741W

    6. Same

    7. Same

    8. 200W = 360000/t ; t= 1800s

    9. 1800W = E / 20 * 60 ; E = 2160000J or 2160KW

    10. Same
