 P: 14 Water flows over a section of a waterfall at the rate of 3.2 104 kg/s and falls 33 m. How much power is generated by the falling water? watts i tried to use the power equation but im just not sure how the numbers relate. help please?
 HW Helper P: 5,346 You need to calculate the rate of potential energy delivery which is m*g*h/sec.
 P: 56 use energy: E$$_{gravitational}$$ before = E$$_{kinetic}$$ after The gravitational energy of the water is turned into kinetic energy the amount of power generated is the energy per second.
P: 14

thanks guys
