$\implies P = \frac{F \Delta x}{\Delta t}$

#### Explanation:

Power is work per unit time. Work is force through a distance. In this way, power and force can be related.

Power is work per unit time:

$\implies P = \frac{W}{\Delta t}$

Work is force through a distance:

$\implies W = F \Delta x$

Hence:

$\implies P = \frac{F \Delta x}{\Delta t}$
