an external combustion engine has a power of 12kilowatt. the speed at which it raises a mass of 120 Kg is?

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

Force applied on the engine to raise the mass = weight of the object = W = mg
Taking g = 10 m/s2

W = 120 ×​ 10 = 1200 N

Power = Force ×​ speed
12000 = 1200 ×​ speed
speed = 10 m/s
