The rollercoaster car is raised a vertical distance of 35 m to point A by a motor
in 45 seconds.
The mass of the rollercoaster is 600 kg.
The motor has a power rating of 8 000 W
(a) calculate the percentage efficiency of the motor
Gravitational field strength= 9.8N/Kg

Hint - what work has been done by the motor to raise the car 35m?

Why are you doing questions on topics you have not been taught?

Work done = Force x distance moved in the direction of the force

600kg = 600x9.8=5880N
power = energy/time = 5880x35 / 45.

Now calculate the %.

You know power = energy / time
You know the mass and therefore the force. So the energy (or work done) = force x distance therefore the power will be fd/t.

(a) calculate the percentage efficiency of the motor
Gravitational field strength= 9.8N/Kg

So efficeiency= Puseful/Pin *100
So we have Power in = 8000W

All we need is Power that is useful in this case the power that the thingy uses to move up.

To work that out we can use

P=Energy/time

We have the time = 45

We now need the energy.

The energy = work done (same thing) can be worked out from the equation

Gpe E = mgh

So M =600
g=9.81
H =35

Plug that in you get and then try to work out the answer.

but can I get the percentage efficiency of the motor?
I got everything but
