Answer:

Work would be #833J#

Explanation:

To find work we need to know that

#"work"=Fd#

Where #F# is force and #d# is distance

In this case #F = mg# because our acceleration vector would be equal and opposite to #g# the force of gravity. So now we have:

#"work"=mgd=[5.0kg][9.8m/s^2][17m]#

#"work"= 833J#
