If a mass of 100kg is to be pushed up a plane inclined at 20 degrees from the horizontal, with a total displacement of 2.0 m, and a coefficient of friction of 0.20, how much work has to be done? Looking for the formula. Thanks!!

Work is defined as force (parallel) component multiplied by the distance.Remember to label all the forces acting on this object of mass 100g.
