A bicylcist of mass 80 kg (including the bike) can coast down a 3.4 deg hill at a steady speed of 9.0 km/hr. Pumping hard, the cyclist can descend the hill at a speed of 30 km/hr. Using the same power, at what speed can the cyclist climb the same hill? Assume the force of air resitance is directly proportional to the speed v; that is Fsubfr=bv, where b is a constant.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Not really sure how to approach this..
