Amanda Runey PHY111 Segvich 11 March 2008 Power of Humans Lab Introduction Average power is the rate at which work is done, or energy is transformed. It is not always how fast something is done, rather it is proportional to the mass of the object. This experiment tested the power of humans while running and walking up a flight of stairs. It will also compare the running and walking power of different people and determine how different masses take their effect. Procedures/Methods In the science building, each member of the group took turns being timed while running up one flight of stairs and then walking up one flight of stairs. We measured the height of one step, and then multiplied it by the number of stairs in the flight. We also recorded how much each member of the group weighed and then converted the measurement into kilograms. This data gave us information enough to calculate the amount of power that was produced both running and walking up the flight of stairs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
