First day of school

Ohhh students.

One of the kids in class had this question on their assignment:

John and Maria measure the power output of the same fluid motor. John gets an answer of 20 nm/sec. Maria gets 20 watts. Who is correct?

The answer is both. One of my kids wrote:

It doesn't matter. Maria is a woman. Therefore, she will win the argument anyway.

I totally gave him full credit.
