How much work does it take to raise a #16 kg # weight #21 m #? Physics Work and Energy Work 1 Answer Dilini Peiris Dec 9, 2015 Answer: #3292.8J# Explanation: if we take the ground level as the zeroth level of gravitational potential energy, then the potential energy that get stored in the object when you lift it #21m# is the work you should do. #W= mgh# where W represents the work you should do.. #W= 16kg* 9.8ms^"-2" *21m# #W= 3292.8 J# Related questions What is a force?
