A skier of mass 70.5 kg is pulled up a slope by a motor-driven cable. How much work is required to pull the skier 60 m up a 38° slope (assumed to be frictionless) at a constant speed of 2.0 m/s?

  • ap physics -

    The elevation gain is
    H = 60 sin38 = 36.9 m

    The energy required is the potential energy gain,
    E = M g H

    The speed does not matter, as long as it is constant. Kinetic energy stays the same.
