1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If a man has an average useful power output of 41.4 W, what minimum time would it take him to lift fifty 15.0-kg boxes to a height of 1.88 m?


2. Relevant equations
1/2mv(final)^2 mgy(final) = 1/2mv(initial)^2 mgy(initial)

P=W/Δt

P=Fv

3. The attempt at a solution

Dont even know where to start
