A winch is used to raise a 200 kg load. The maximum power of the winch is 5 kW. Calculate the greatest possible acceleration of the load when its speed is 2 ms^1, and the greatest speed at which the load can be raised.
Alright so this is how I went about things: power=force x velocity, so upward force = 5000/2 = 2500. So net upward force = 500 N, so greatest possible acceleration = 500/200 = 2.5 ms^2.
I know this is incorrect, where did I go wrong?
