Basic physics problem

  1. Jul 3, 2006 #1
    :frown: I have this example problem and I can't seem to figure out how to do it.
    it says, there is a 1kg block on an inclined plane, the angle is 45 degrees and the distance of the inclined plane is 10m. there is a force pulling on it with 25N, it asks what is the work that the normal force, frictional force, the gravitational force and the applied force is doing on the block? Can somebody please help me? I really need to know how to do this.
    thanks a lot

    What have you done so far? You might start with the definition of work.
