6.52: Here, Eq. (6.19) is the most direct. Gravity is doing negative work, so the rope must do positive work to lift the skiers. The force F is gravity, and , Nmg F = where N is the number of skiers on the rope. The power is then W. 10 96 . 2 ) 0 . 15 (90.0 cos h km 6 . 3 s m 1 h) km (12.0 ) s m (9.80 kg) (70 ) 50 ( cos ) ( ) ( 4 2 × = ° - °
