A weightlifter raises a 90k-g barbell from the floor to a height of 2/2 m in 0.6 s. What was his average power output during his lift?
Sorry I wrote it wrong the first time!
90k-g barbell from the floor to a height of 2.2 m in 0.6 s
g=acceleration due to gravity=9.8 m/s^sup2;
= 90g * 2.2
= 1940 N-m
Power (W, N-m/s, or J/s)
= 1940 J /0.6 s
= 3234 W
Note: one horsepower = 746 watts
=f.h/t ( w=f.h)
