What tasks requires the most work: lifting a 50-kg sack 2 meters or lifting a 25-kg sack 4 meters?
they are the same
Both a 50-kg sack is lifted 2 meters from the ground and a 25-kg sack is lifted 4 meters in the same time. The power exerted in raising the 50-kg sack is ___.

Using 1000 J of work, a toy elevator is raised from the ground floor to the second floor in 20 seconds. The power needed to do this job is ____.
How much power is used if a force of 35 N is used to push a box a distance of 10 m in 5 seconds?
sometimes called angular speed; involves the # of rotations or revolutions per unit of time
the property of an object that measures its resistance to any change in its state of rotation: if at rest, the body tends to remain at rest; if rotating it tends to remain rotating and will continue to do so unless acted upon by an external net torque
center of mass (CM)
the average position of the mass of an object; moves as if all the external forces acted at this point
center of gravity (CG)
the average position of weight or the single point associated with an object where the force of gravity can be considered to act
a force directed toward a fixed point, usually the cause of circular motion means "center seeking" or "toward the center"
an outward force apparent in rotation frame of reference. It is apparent in the sense that it is not part of an interaction but as a result of rotation-- which no reaction-force counterpart
the product of the body's rotational inertia and rotational velocity about a particular axis. For an object that is small compared with the radial distance, it can be expressed as the product of mass, speed, and the radial distance of rotation
conservation of angular momentum
When no external torque acts on an object or a system of objects, no change of angular momentum can occur hence, the angular momentum before an event involving only internal torques or no torques to the angular momentum after the event
