**29.43 J**

#### Explanation:

Now based on the formula,

**Work done= force × displacement in the force's direction**

Here, the force you apply is equal to the **weight** of the object you're carrying which is:

**W= mg = 3× 9.81= 29.43 N**

Now the **displacement** of the object is 1 m. So the work done here is:

**W= f.s = 29.43 × 1= 29.43 J**
