  1. a. W = Fd = 100 * 1.5 = 150 Joules.

    b. E = mgh = 100 * 1.5 = 150 Joules.

    c. V = 4boxes/min * 1.5m/box * (1/60)min/s = 0.1m/s.

    Po = FV = 100 * 0.1m/s = 10 Joules/s =
    10 Watts.

  2. a.work done = 100*1.5 = 15o Joules
    b.energy = 10*10*1.5 = 150 Joules
    c.power = 150 / 60 = 2.5 W

  3. Work done =m*g*h
    (m*g =weight)
    Then,work=100*1.5
    =150J

    Work done = Energy consumed
    =150J

    Power=work done/time taken
    =4*150/60
    =10W
