and now has no means to earn money other than a camel whereas Ram
becomes an engineer. Now both are working in the same factory. Ali uses
camel to transport the load within the factory.
Due to low salary and degradation in health of camel, Ali becomes worried and meets his friend Ram and discusses his problems. Ram
collected some data and with some assumption concluded the following.

k
. = and 0 2
s
. = .

stopped with constant retardation in 50 m.
IV. From biological data, the rate of consumption of energy of camel can be expressed as
3 4
18 10 10 P v J / s = + where P is the
power and v is the velocity of the camel. After calculations on different issues Ram suggested proper food, speed of camel, etc. to
his friend. For the welfare of Ali, Ram wrote a letter to the management to increase his salary. (Assuming that the camel exerts a
horizontal force on the load) :
