A 50 kg girl is swinging on a swing from rest.then the power delivered when moving with a velocity of 2m/s upwards in a direction making an angle 60* with the vertical is?

Refer to the following diagram

We know that in this case

Power = Tension x velocity


P = T × v


T = Fgcosθ = mgcosθ = 50 x 9.8 x cos60

v = 2 m/s


P = (50 x 9.8 x cos60) x 2

thus, power will be

P = 490W
