Homework Help: Ski-Tow question - Work and Power

  1. Oct 16, 2004 #1
    A ski tow operates on a slope of angle 15.5 degrees of length 290m . The rope moves at a speed of 11.5km/hr and provides power for 50.0 riders at one time, with an average mass per rider of 75.0kg .

    Q: Estimate the power required to operate the tow.

    I missed class when he went over power.
    i drew a free body diagram already but im still lost. I need someone to point me in the right direction.
