A 301 kilogram piano is being lifted at a steady speed from ground level straight upward to an apartment 10.0 meters above the ground. The crane that is doing the lifting produces a steady power of 415 watts. How long does it take to lift the piano?

I don't understand how to begin to solve the question.

  • physics -

    power = work/time (W)
    work = force * distance (J)
    force = mass * g (N)

    work = 301*9.8*10 = 29498J
    power = 415J/sec

    time = work/power = 71.08 s
