A portable CD player uses a current of 7.1 mA at a potential difference of 3.5 V. In 65 sec, the CD player uses 1.5925 J of power. Suppose the player has a mass of 0.61 kg. For what length of time could the player operate on the energy required to lift it through a height of 1 m?

2. Relevant equations

I thought at first of using 1/2 mv^2 +mgy = 1/2 mv^2 +mgy with initial and final values, but then I realized that I would not be able to solve for v. I am not quite sure how to incorporate the information that they give in order to find out the answer.
