Power = Work over Time

Why, yes it does.  Not only does an athlete have to work very hard for a long time to develop the power necessary to be a great gymnast, but also in gymnastics physics, power does equal work over time.  So, the next time you try a line like “power equals work over time” and your athlete just laughs, flip some gymnastics physics on him and prove that you’re right.  

power = work / time

p = w / t

For now just remember the difference between speed and velocity.  We’ll start getting to this formula next time.  We’ll also start working on multiple universes and twisting moments.
