Problem 115
Textbook Question

A 100-kg man decides to add to his exercise routine by walking up six flights of stairs (30 m) 10 times per day. He figures that the work required to increase his potential energy in this way will permit him to eat an extra order of French fries, at 245 Cal, without adding to his weight. Is he correct in this assumption?
