How much work does it take to raise a #18 kg # weight #2 m #? Physics Work and Energy Work 1 Answer Mary Ann May 15, 2018 Answer: It takes about 352.8 joules to raise 18kg by 2 meters. Explanation: Use the equation for work; W=Fd. That turns into W=mgh if you replace F with mg (because of Newton's equation F=ma) because the work is in a vertical direction. #W=mgh# #W=18*9.8*2# #W=352.8 # Related questions What is a force?
