Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Help on Monday, October 3, 2011 at 8:40pm.

One boat tows another boat by means of a tow line, which is under a constant tension of 495 N. The boats move at a constant speed of 4.75 m/s. How much work is done by the tension in 1.10 min?

Not sure how to apply the work-energy theorem. I assume velocity needs to be calculated from given speed and change in distance.
