Homework Help: Physics Problem

Posted by Jenni on Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 11:20pm.

A 60 kg skydiver moving at terminal speed falls 50m in 1 s. What power is the skydiver expending on the air?

This what I got so far:

powerloss=weight * velocity
powerloss=60kg *50m
powerloss=3000 (but I dont know the units)
