An engine provides a 10kw of power to lift a heavy load at a constant velocity a distance 20m in 5s. what is the mass of the object being lifted?

  • physics -

    10kw=m*9.8*20m/5s

    solve for mass

  • physics -

    150kg?

  • physics -

    no, redo your calculator.

  • physics -

    when i worked it out one way i got 250kg and when i worked it out the second way i got 200kg

  • physics -

    so what is the right answer?
