I had several inclined planes, all with the same height(15.5cm) I then pulled up a trolley (600g) with a force metre here are my results(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

length force

66.8 1.5

57.1 2

47.6 2.5

38.3 3

29.4 4

21.6 5.5

16.3 6.5

I now need to manipulate the raw data to find the height (which is already known to be 15.5)

2. Relevant equations

work done= energy transferred

?fd=mgh?

3. The attempt at a solution

I was trying

fd=mgh

for example for the first one

1.5 * .668 = .6kg* 9.8 *h

17cm

I'd really appreciate some help, thanks
