Answer:

#117.6 \ "J"#

Explanation:

Work done is given by:

#W=F*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 \ "kg"*9.8 \ "m/s"^2=19.6 \ "N"#.

So, the work done is:

#W=19.6 \ "N"*6 \ "m"#

#=117.6 \ "J"#
