U=mgh U=(62*(2600-3700)*9.8)

This value is energy or work denoted as a Joule. A Watt= Joule/Seconds

So simply take your joules and divide it by the time the trip took. Convert your 5hr to seconds so...

W=(62*(2600-3700)*9.8)/(5*3600)

easy way to find HP is 1W=0.00134102209HP or

HP=(62*(2600-3700)*9.8)/(5*3600)*0.00134102209
