# How much work would it take to push a  12 kg  weight up a  6 m  plane that is at an incline of  pi / 3 ?

Apr 13, 2017

The work done is $= 611.1 J$

#### Explanation:

The component of the force parallel to the plane is

$F = m g \sin \theta$

The work done is

$W = F \cdot d$

$W = m g \sin \theta \cdot d$

$= 12 \cdot 9.8 \cdot \sin \left(\frac{\pi}{3}\right) \cdot 6$

$= 611.1 J$
