Today, we'll learn about power. Power is defined as work per unit time. We'll do a lab to calculate our own horsepower while climbing the stairs.  In class, you'll finish back page of horsepower lab and read this brief article on horsepower to help you understand it.

Handout:  Power Lab (you'll only be calculating your own power - three trial times only)
Homework: Finish Work, Energy, and Power Review Problems.  Page 1 SOLUTIONS.  Exam on Work & Energy  - Thursday, February 20th.  We'll start new material next class.
