## 10x-08 San Francisco Trolley #2

• 0:00 - 0:03
We're here at the San Francisco trolley station.
• 0:03 - 0:06
Now, the trolleys in San Francisco have a lot of mass.
• 0:06 - 0:08
The hills in San Francisco are quite steep.
• 0:08 - 0:11
In order to keep a decent pace going up these hills,
• 0:11 - 0:14
these trolleys need to have a lot of power.
• 0:14 - 0:17
In this problem, you're going to make some calculations involving
• 0:17 - 0:20
the power of a San Francisco trolley.
• 0:20 - 0:24
So, my question is if you have a cable car with a mass of 2000 kg
• 0:24 - 0:27
on a hill inclined at 10 degrees and it needs to keep moving up
• 0:27 - 0:33
at a constant pace of 25 kg per hour, what is the necessary power?
• 0:33 - 0:35
Now, there's two ways to solve this problem.
• 0:35 - 0:40
One involves using an equation that you learned in one of the problem sets,
• 0:40 - 0:44
and actually this would be a nice, simple, easy way to solve it.
• 0:44 - 0:46
The other would require a little bit more work and would involve the definition
• 0:46 - 0:48
of power that you learned in class.
• 0:48 -
