I would like to know how fast one M&M could make me run.
One M&M can provide about 12600 J of energy, I weight 68.5 kg.
1)Does this mean I COULD run at about 19 m/s for a fraction of a second using Ke equation?
(I know the human body is complex, muscles are about 25% efficient)
2) I would like to calculate my NEGATIVE work in joules from raising in my hand a 1kg mass, 1m height
3) How many M&M's would I have to eat to raise this?
4) If I want to do question #2 in one second what variable do I need to know to calculate how many M&M's I would need
The Attempt at a Solution
1) 19 m/s solving for velocity not factoring muscle efficiency or other variables
2) -9.8 joules
Thanks!!! I am trying to design a lab for kids.
