Dear shivanshi


F= α V

power P = FV

            =α V2

      7.5  =α * 16

        α   =7.5/16

so at 12 km/hr

   P = α * 144

       =7.5/16   * 144

       =67.5 kw

Yes it is taken into consideration. All the forces acting on the body are taken into consideration when solving any type of problem unless stated otherwise.
