So I have to do this research project and it's due Tuesday, but I have no idea how to do it.
I'm supposed to take my bass amp and somehow measure the power that comes out of the amp as a result of my plucking the strings. Does anybody have any idea on how to do that?

Power, as in volts and amps? Those numbers may be on the back of the amplifier.

depending on what settings you have, you can find the power dissipated by the amp with either voltage, current (amps), or resistance.
an esay way to take readings are with voltmeters and ammeters

because this is your own research project, I'm not going to give you any more help (that's your job, right? lol), so sorryyyy, but if you'd like some ideas you could always personally ask one of the UG physics gurus

You'd need to somehow hook your amp up to an ammeter and voltmeter, using P = IV. Though how you would measure the force at which you pluck the strings...no idea.
