Power – problems and solutions

1. A 50-kg person runs up the stairs 10 meters high in 2 minutes. Acceleration due to gravity (g)
is 10 m/s2. Determine the power.

Known :

Mass (m) = 50 kg

Height (h) = 10 meters

Acceleration due to gravity (g) = 10 m/s2

Time interval (t) = 2 minute = 2 (60) = 120 seconds

Wanted : Power (P)

Solution :

Formula of power :

P=W/t

P = power, W = work, t = time

Formula of Work :

W=Fs=wh=mgh

W = work, F = force, w = weight, d = displacement, h = height, m = mass, g = acceleration due


to gravity

W = m g h = (50)(10)(10) = 5000 Joule.

P = W / t = 5000 / 120 = 41.7 Joule/second.

2. Calculate the power required of a 60-kg person climbs a tree 5 meters high in 10 seconds.
Acceleration due to gravity is 10 m/s2.
Known :

Mass (m) = 60 kg

Height (h) = 5 meters

Acceleration due to gravity (g) = 10 m/s2
