Question

Let’s explore the assumptions we made. Look closely at Jessie’s motion as she runs. In calculating her power output, we assumed that the work she did was equal to the work done by the force of gravity on her body. Do you think that is a good assumption

Answer:No, it is not a good assumption

Explanation:From the given information:

The work Jessie did was quite more than the work done by the force of gravity. This is because the gravity of the force on her body is perpendicular to its motion and the work done by Jessie is due to the muscular force of her body. Hence, the total power she produced is more than the calculated amount.
