Give the equation for power.
Identify the variables and give the units
Explain the concept of power by using the
words energy, time, and power?
A 50.0 kg student is pulled 5.00 m up a
rope at a constant speed of 1.25 m/s. How much power does the motor
use in raising the student? (Yes, this is a two-part problem.)
The same 50.0 kg student climbs up a rope
at a constant speed.
a) If the studentís power output is 200.0 W, how long does it take the student to climb the rope?
b) How much work does the student do?
