Unformatted text preview: s not emerge as electricity)? Solution If all the water fell through the same difference in height, the amount of gravitational potential energy released would be 6.U = mgti.y = (8.5x 109 kg) x (9.8 m/s2)(140 m) = 1.17xl013 J. The energy generated by the power plant at an average power output of 330 MW over an 8 h period is (330 MW) x (8x3600 s) = 9;50xlO12 J, so the fraction lost is (11.7 - 9.50)/11.7 = 18.5%. :::":', . kg block is launched up a 30 incline with '3.4 malong the incline, as shown in 7.

    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.
