A 50.7 kg student climbs a 6.35 m long rope and stops at the top. What must her average speed be in order to match the power output of a 130 W lightbulb

  • physics -

    m g h = gain in potential energy

    50.7 * 9.81 * 6.35 = 3158 Joules

    joules/t = power
    so
    power in Joules/second or Watts = 3158/t
    so
    3158/t = 130
    t = 24.3 seconds
