Solve: (a) The food energy equals so (b) The mechanical energy would be 20% of the results of part (a): 7.40. Set Up: Set 20% of the food energy (in joules) equal to the total work you do in raising the weight N times. Solve: For each arm raise, you do work equal to where Reflect: It is not reasonable to do this many repetitions in a single exercise session. 7.41. Set Up: Set 20% of the food energy (in joules) equal to the total work you do in jumping upward a distance of N times. Solve: The total time it would take is thus Reflect: This would be a very strenuous workout even for a very fit person. 7.42. Set Up: Use Setting and gives Solve: 7.43 Set Up: For part (a), Take and For part (b), use with and this gives Solve: (a) (b) The final kinetic energy of each kilogram is equal to the initial potential energy, while the corresponding speed is By comparison, for a 70 kg person, (c) To double double since mg is constant, this means h must be doubled. You therefore need To double you must increase h by a factor of 4 resulting in 7.44.

    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.
