a bike is 25% efficient in converting energy of the bicyclist to mechanical energy. If a cyclist is travelling along a pathway at a constant speed of 5.8 m/s for 3600 s, and the average resistance is 22 N, how much mass does she lose assuming 1 kg is lost for each 2.9 x 10^7 J of energy she uses?

  • Physics -

    The bike does 22*5.8*3600 joules work.
    She does 4 times that amount of energy, or
    4*22*5.8*3600 joules.

    Weightlost? 4*22*5.8*3600/2.9E7= not much.

  • Physics -

    Thank you so much!
