    A sled of mass m is being pulled horizontally by a constant upward force of magnitude F that makes an angle theta with the direction of motion. The coefficient of kinetic friction is mu_k. The average velocity of the sled is v_avg.

    Find the average power P_avg created by force F.

    Express your answer in terms of F, theta, and v_avg.
