# Find maximum speed

a) what is the maximum weight they can move at constant speed?
I used 0.42xmg = 6000 x 360
mg = 5142857 N

b)what is the maximum speed with which they can move this weight?
im thinking power = F / v is used but I keep getting a large number also Ive converted hp to watts.

I would change that formula around slightly ...

I see now I was doing 208 watts / 5142857 N
but i was 208/360 N.
