# An unruly demonst

Mass of stone = 200 g = 0.2 kg

Speed at which the stone is thrown = 3 m/s

Height of the stone above ground at the time of projection = 150 cm = 1.5 m

Work done by the demonstrator = Total energy of the process

= Kinetic energy + Potential energy

= 1/2 × Mass × (speed)2 + Mass × acceleration due to gravity × height

= 0.5 ×0.2 × 32 + 0.2 × 9.8 × 1.5

= 0.9 + 2.94

= 3.84 J

Power = Work done/ time

= 3.84/1

= 3.84 J/sec or W

= 3.84/746 hp

= 5.14 × 10-3 hp
