The largest turtle ever caught in the US had a mass of over 800 kg. Supoose this turtle were raised 5.45 m onto the deck of the research ship. If it takes 4.60 x 10^4 J of work to lift the turtle this distance at a constant velocity, what is the turtle's weight?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Weight's measured in N.

so what formula would you use?
