(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You raise a bucket of water from the bottom of a deep well. If your power output is 104 W, and the mass of the bucket and the water in it is 6.00 kg, with what speed can you raise the bucket? Ignore the weight of the rope.

2. Relevant equations

P=W/t

W=P*t

W=1/2m*vf^2-1/2m*vi^2

3. The attempt at a solution

P*t=1/2m*vf^2

2*P*t/m=vf^2

I don't know what the time is can this problem be done without it?
