a bucket of water of mass 20kg is pulled at a constant velocity up to a platform 40 meters above the ground. this takes 10 minutes , during which time 5kg of water drips out at a steady rate through a hole in the bottom . find the work required to raise the bucket to the platform.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from the information above, we know the average mass of the bucket of water may be m=205/2=17.5kg. as the bucket of water is pulled at a "constant velocity" , the mechanical energy is in conservation. in other words, the work required to raise the bucket to the platform transformed into the potential energy of the bucket of water. thus the answer should be W=mgh=17.5*9.8*40=6860J, irrelevant to the time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the rate of the dripping wate, according to the problem, is 5kg/10min=5kg/600s=1/120 kg/s(convenient to use ISU here). you can consider a function on the mass of the bucket of water to the time as m(t)=20t/120.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from t=0 to 600, m(t)dx=(20t/120)dx=20dx(t/120)dx=20tt^2/240=10500kg*s. W=mgh=m(t)dx*gh/t=10500*9.8*40/600=6860J
