A 73kg sprinter, starting from rest, reaches a speed of 7.0 m/s in 1.8s, with a negliable effect due to air resistance. The sprinter then runs with the remained of the race at a steady speed of 7.0 m/s under the influence of a 35-N force due to air resistance. What is the average power needed (a) to accelerate the runner and (b) to sustain the steady speed at which most of the race is run? Express the answer in watts and horsepower.
