Okay. Can you define it using the formula. What you said is right. But in terms of a formula for Power, P = ?

Energy = power x time.

Make sure power is in watts and time in seconds for you to calculate the energy in Joules

Yes power is measured in Watts.
So 5 Watts = 5 Joules per second
whats the time duration in seconds?

ok so i got the answer 600 seconds x 5W = 3000J is that correct?

Yep. You just have to make sure time is in seconds because the definition of 1 watt = 1 Joule per second
so if you want to multiply power by time, time must be in seconds!

thats it.
