Time it takes to lift boxes when man has an average useful power output of 41.4 W

  1. Mar 20, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If a man has an average useful power output of 41.4 W, what minimum time would it take him to lift fifty 15.0-kg boxes to a height of 1.88 m?


    2. Relevant equations
    1/2mv(final)^2 mgy(final) = 1/2mv(initial)^2 mgy(initial)

    P=W/Δt

    P=Fv

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Dont even know where to start
