# How much work does it take to raise a 7 kg  weight 36 m ?

Apr 25, 2016

68.67 N $\times$36 meters = ?

#### Explanation:

W = F $\times$d

W = work done (measured in Joules)
F = Force (measured in Newtons)
d = distance (measured in meters)

Convert 7 kg into Newton = 7 $\times$9.81 = 68.67 Newtons,
since 1 kg = 9.81 Newtons

You have found the distance and the force.

The amount of work done is: $68.67 N \times 36 m$ = 2472.12 Joules
