PhysCasts: Power Exerted Riding a Bike at Constant Velocity

Hall, B. (Brenton)


This PhysCast is about power and velocity. Riding your 14kg bike at a steady 18km/h (5.0 m/s) you experience a 30-N force from air resistance. If your mass is 68 kg what power must you supply on level ground and going up a 5 degree incline?
