Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The requested average power P, is given by the subsequent formula: \[\Large P = \frac{{mgh}}{{\Delta t}}\] where m is the mass of water, h is the depth of the well, g is gravity, and \Delta t are the seconds contained in 1 day In that way the power will be measured in watt

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 204 x 9.81 x 5 = 10006.2 kJ Power = 10006.2 kJ / 1 = 10006.2 kW = 10.0062 mW which doesn't fall under any of the options. Did I misinterpret something here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First of all it will be joules not kilo joules secondly you are given the time as 1 day not 1 second \[\Delta t=1day=24\times60\times60 seconds\]
