# A block of mass 20 kg is moved with constant velocity along an inclined plane of inclination 37° with help of a force of constant power 50 W. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between block and surface is 0.25, then what fraction of power is used against gravity?

From equilibrium of forces along the incline,


Power==constant=

Power used against gravity=
Hence fraction of power used=%

From equilibrium of forces along the incline,
mgsin\theta+\mu mg cos\theta=F
\implies F=160N
Power=Fv=constant=50W
\implies v=\dfrac{5}{16}m/s
Power used against gravity=\vec{F_g}.\vec{v}=-mgsin\theta v=37.5W
Hence fraction of power used=75%%
