# How much work does it take to raise a 34 kg  weight 3 m ?

Mar 19, 2018

$999.6 \setminus \text{J}$

#### Explanation:

Work is given by the equation,

$W = F \cdot d$

• $F$ is the force in newtons

• $d$ is the distance moved in meters

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

So, the work will be

$W = 333.2 \setminus \text{N"*3 \ "m}$

$= 999.6 \setminus \text{J}$
