# How much work does it take to raise a 2 kg  weight 6 m ?

May 16, 2018

$117.6 \setminus \text{J}$

#### Explanation:

Work done is given by:

$W = F \cdot d$

where:

• $F$ is the force in newtons

• $d$ is the distance in meters

Here, the force is the weight in newtons of the weight, which is $2 \setminus \text{kg"*9.8 \ "m/s"^2=19.6 \ "N}$.

So, the work done is:

$W = 19.6 \setminus \text{N"*6 \ "m}$

$= 117.6 \setminus \text{J}$
