# How much work does it take to raise a 9 kg  weight 34 m ?

Jul 17, 2017

$2998.8$ $J$

#### Explanation:

The formula for work is $W = F d$. To find the force, use the formula ${F}_{g} = m a$, where $a$ is $9.8 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2$.

$W = F d$

$W = \left(9 k g \cdot 9.8 \frac{m}{s} ^ 2\right) \cdot 34 m$

$W = 2998.8$ $J$
