If a certain horse can maintain 1.00hp of output for 2 hrs, how many 70 kg bundles of shingles can the horse hoist to the roof of a house 8 m tall, assuming 70% efficiency?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

He're what I did: 1 hp = 745.7 W = 44742 J/min = 2684520 J/hr = 5369040 J/ 2 hr * 70% = 3758328 J / 2 hr

W=Fd

W=(70*9.8)(8m)

W=5488 J

3758328 J / 5488 J =684.8 bundles of shingles

is this correct?
