here's another one that i have no idea how to do If a car is accelerating downhill under a net force of 3674 N what force must the brakes exert to cuase the car to have a constant velocity?

A 100W light bulb is left on for 10hrs. Over this period of time how much energy is used by the bulb? am i doing this right? my guess is to convert 100W to kW and convert 10 hrs to seconds and multiply the 2 together? which gives 3600J or should i just leave it in watts?
