Hey everyone. Just taking a basic physics class and we were given a problem to solve for our own hp. So heres the numbers: I went up a flight of stairs for a total distance of 6.2 ft. I weigh 190lbs. It took me 2.2 seconds. I know 1 hp = 550 ft lbs/sec. So..... I would think that I could set up 6.2ft over 190 lbs. and 1 ft over x and solve for it. So I get 30.69 ft lbs. Then I could set up 30.69 ft lbs over 2.2 seconds and x over 1 second to get 13.59 ft lbs/sec. Then set up 550 ft lbs/sec over 1 hp and 13.59 ft lbs/sec over x and solve for x. So I get .025HP. Does this sound right?

Thanks,

Scott
