Wind farms are a source of renewable energy found around the world. The power P (in kilowatts) generated by a wind turbine varies directly as the cube of the wind speed v (in meters per second).
If a turbine generates 500kW in a 10m/s wind, how much power does it generate in a 12m/s wind?

  1. P = kv^3
    So,
    P/v^3 is constant.

    You want P such that

    P/12^3 = 500/10^3
