We know that i)avg speed of A Hamster is 30km/hr. ii)Avg mass of hamster is 1.5 kg.
From the above info:
Kinetic energy=1/2 X mass X velocity^2
So, K.E=1/2 x 1.5 x 30 x 30
=1/2 x 3/2 x 900 =675
=675 J per hr.
In one second,=675/3600 =1/5 j/s
but power needed is 15j/s to light a CFL.
75 Hamsters would have done that.
if I catch 75 hamsters,and run them for an hr,can I light a bulb
[NOTE:-Just applied my 14 yrs old brain...pls correct if I am wrong..also,please tell me why are hamsters used in experiments]
