Measuring Power Lab DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. The factors that were important in determining how much power was produced is your mass, the distance you had to move your mass and the distance you ran up the stairs. 2. Physical characteristics that produced the highest horsepower ratings in this experiment are the participants heights, length of legs and their speed. 3. I found the vertical height the runner traveled by finding the height of one stair and multiplying it by the number of stairs we had to run up (15). 4. Horsepower measures how much force the engine can apply to car in a given amount of time. It is a measurement of power, which is measured in Joules per second, or Watts. The equation for instantaneous Power is P=FV for an object moving in a straight line. To find the horsepower, this formula must be divided by 746, because there are 746 watts in one Horsepower. Conservation of Mechanical Energy Lab CONCLUSIONS: 13. During the highest point of oscillation the elastic potential energy is greatest at
