A heat engine operating between temperatures 500K and 300K is used to lift a 10KG mass vertically at a constant speed of 4 meters per second.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Determine the power the engine must supply to life the mass.

I'm having trouble finding an equation that could relate temperature and my other given variables..I think I need to get the Work done, thus I can calculate the power...anyone care to enlighten me as to how to go about it?
