Default P = F x D / T formula

This was mentioned at the end of a class of mine today, yet I cannot find it in my texts, could someone just let me know the basic breakdown of this? Thanks

Power = Force X Distance / Time

Work = Force X Distance

Therefore,

Power = Work / Time

Also,

Velocity = Distance / Time

Therefore,

Power = Force X Velocity

Force = Mass x Acceleration

Velocity = (change in distance)/(change in time)

What you shoudl have learned is the essential formula of business.

S=P-E.

Satisfaction equals Performance minus expectations. Keep performance steady while steadily lowering expectations and the consumer will be satisfied. The old microsoft adage,

If the sun is blotted out, declare darkness the "industry standard"
