This problem is simple and i cant figure out what I am doing wrong. I am supposed to find the speed of a bucket that is being lifted out of a well with a power output of 118W. The mass of the bucket is 4.5 kg and the weight of the rope is ignore. Dividing the power by the force should give me the velocity but it doesnt. I used 118 over 4.5*9.81 and the answer is wrong. Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
