    Frustrating Physics

    How much power do you develop when you dash up an incline with a verticle height of 5.00m taking 1.33s?
    I have no idea how to approach a way to find force in this question to solve for power. Any help is really appreciated!

    i need mass to find the potential energy to go up 5m. E = mgh

    And Power is measured in watts and I assume to get the equation we will use is P= E/t because t is already given.
