Answer:

#999.6 \ "J"#

Explanation:

Work is given by the equation,

#W=F*d#

  • #F# is the force in newtons

  • #d# is the distance moved in meters

Here, the force is the weight of the object, which is #34 \ "kg"*9.8 \ "m/s"^2=333.2 \ "N"#, while #d=3 \ "m"#.

So, the work will be

#W=333.2 \ "N"*3 \ "m"#

#=999.6 \ "J"#
