1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi guys can you help me with this problem? I have to find the power required to lift a boat up an incline (24.25 degrees to the horizontal). The boat lock is attached to a counterweight which is 25T heavier when the boat is ascending the incline. The mass of a boat and lock is 1020T so the counterweight Weight is 1045T. What the tension on the chord and the power required to lift the boat at a constant velocity? The height of incline is 55m Linear incline length is 134m 2. Relevant equations Tension = F(push by the counterweight) - F(pull by the boat) ? and then for power (T x displacement )/time ? 3. The attempt at a solution Tension on cable= Fpush - Fpull T= (50T)(9.81)sin24.25 - (25T)9.81sin24.25 T=100.8KN Work= Tension x displacement Work= 100.8KN x 133 POWER= (100.8KN x 266m)/8(60)s (power ascending and descending) Power= 55.6KW Is this correct ?
