**Hint**

Power absorbed by a resistive element:

$$$P=VI=\frac{V^{2}}{R}=I^2R$$$

where
$$V$$
is voltage,
$$I$$
is current, and
$$R$$
is resistance.

**Hint 2**

Based on the problem statementâ€™s givens, solve for power using the equation:

$$$P=\frac{V^{2}}{R}$$$

Power absorbed by a resistive element:

$$$P=VI=\frac{V^{2}}{R}=I^2R$$$

where
$$V$$
is voltage,
$$I$$
is current, and
$$R$$
is resistance.

Solving for Power using the problem statementâ€™s knowns:

$$$P=\frac{V^{2}}{R}=\frac{60^{2}}{10}$$$

$$$P=\frac{3600}{10}=360\:W$$$

360 W
