It takes 20s for a person A to climb up stairs while the other person B does the same in 15s. compare the (1) work done (2)power developed by person A and B

Let h be the height of staircase climbed by A and B. Let mA is weight of A and mB is weight of B.

Workdone by A to climb the Staircase, WA = mA×g×h Joules
Workdone by B to climb the Staircase WB = mB×g×h Joules

Hence the ratio WA/WB = mA / mB

Power developed by A,  PA = (mA×g×h)/20 watts
Power developed by B,  PB = (mB×g×h)/15 watts

Power ratio PA/PB = (15mA)/(20mB) = (3mA)/(4mB)
