    How can we find out the capacity of a pump in watts which is required to pump water to a height of 50ft with a flow rate of 3L/m?

    Sounds like homework.

    Are you assuming the pump and motor are 100% efficient? If so then you just need to calculate the energy required to raise the weight of 3l of water 50ft in 1 minute and translate that into watts.
