I don't need distance: I have a Garmin for that.

Work Done =Force x Distance. (Where Force = Mass x Acceleration of course. F = MA).
Power is Work Done / Time (which provides Joules/s or Watts).

This isn't helping my technical problems with the power meter though but it is great to revisit GSCE Physics.
That may be true, but power meters derive watts from force and cadence. That’s why they all have a cadence function. In this case I find it helpful to be ignorant of the science.😉
