5 answers

  1. 1a) W1=W2 = mgh
    2a) P1 > P2 , mgh/25 >mgh/35

    2) W=Fs=80•10 =800 J

  2. The work done = potential energy gained = m g h.
    That is the same for both since m, g and h are the same for both

    The power is the work per unit time.

    Power = m g h/t
    so smaller t ---> bigger power

  3. Calculate the work done when a person push acar from stationany position to a

    distance of 50m appliny a. force of 200n.
