```							Since mass is leaving ccontinuosly its a variable mass system problem and hence,F = dP/dt eqn. can be used where P is momentum.Hence,F = d(mv)/dt = > vdm/dt + mdv/dt => vdm/dt +  masince dm/dt = 30 kg/min but velocity is negligible that is v = 0.Hence,F = m*gand work would be = F x 10 => 100m.To cover 10 m distance time taken would be = > root(2) seconds.Now with rate 30 kg in a minuteit would lift in 1.414 seconds the mass would be = > 30*1.414/60 = >0.707106 kg. Hence work done = > 100 * 0.707106 = > 70.7106 Joule.Horse Power = > 0.09478 HP.
