A man of mass 80 kg is carries a load of 20 kg upto a height 20 m in 40 s.
Given information -
Total mass = 80 + 20 = 100 kg
h = 20 m
s = 40 s
g = 10 m/s2
a) If the person is at ground level then the potential energy at that point is suppose to be zero.
When man carries load upto a certain height the,
Potential energy at height of 20 m = Work done = mgh = 100 x 10 x 20 = 20000 J
Thus, change in potential energy = work done by him = 20000 Joules
b) Power = Work done/ time
P = 20000/40 = 500 W
Thus power required by man to carry away the load upto 20 m in 40 s was 500 Watt.

- what is energy
- did the kilometer is a SI unit of measurement
- Which energy source is renewable
- When do we say that work is done ?
- What is potential energy,kinetical energy,power?
- what is conservation of energy? Explain with an example example.
- explain how energy is conserved in a simple pendulum
- a body of mass 5 kg is thrown vertically upward with a velocity of 20 metre per second find 1- initial kinetic energy 2-kinetic energy and potential energy after 1 second( given g =10 /s^2)
- ANOBJECT OF MASS 40KG IS RAISED AT A HEIGHT OF 5M ABOVE THE GROUND . WHATIS ITS POTENTIAL ENERGY ? IF THE OBJECT IS ALLOWED TO FALL FIND ITS KINETIC ENERGY WHEN IT IS HALF WAY DOWN?
