Homework Help: Energy, work and power

  1. May 31, 2007 #1
    hey guys,
    here is the question i attempted.
    Use the concept of energy,work and power to explain how you might increase the speed you can attain in a ski race?

    power= W/t=E/T. i don't really get this question. is it that the more work you do is a small amount of time the more power you have so u are able to go fater in a ski race. can i connect this question to horse power. 1 hp=750W
    thank you

    I don't understand your question. Could you rephrase it?
