Just checking, if the area under a force extension graph is work done, could you also say that it was equal to power in an exam question? Or would you lose marks?

work done= force x distance whereas power=work done/time taken
by looking at the equation you could see power is not equal to work done
but you could say that "area under a force extension graph is work done in a given time which is equal to power".. provided that the question states that the work was done by a certain amount of time..
are you doing aqa gcse science?Last edited by danr2; 13-01-2016 at 20:00.
