Which of the following things will increase the power exerted by a student?

OpenStudy (kainui):

What is the units of power? The Watt. Watts are another name for Joules per second. What's a Joule? That's the unit of energy, which is Force times distance. What's a force? A mass times acceleration. \[1W=1J/s=1Nm/s=1kgm^2/s^3\] So when it comes down to it, you can increase any of these factors to increase the power worked by the student. I'd suggest threatening the student to take away his/her computer or cell phone to increase their acceleration and make the student work out to gain muscle mass and run so that they gain endurance while also eating a big, healthy diet. This increased mass increases the force, the increased acceleration increases the force, the endurance and diet makes them able to maintain the force for a longer time since, recall that watts is energy per second.
