**Finding the Work done on a Ride!?!**

## Homework Statement

The lift incline on the Batwing ride at Six Flags America, is 66.2 m long and has an incline of 32.0 degrees. How much work is done to take a 43 Kg child to the top of the hill?

## Homework Equations

W = FsCos

I don't know if this is the right formula to use!

## The Attempt at a Solution

If this is the right formula to use would the solution go like this:

F = 43 Kg x 9.81 m/s/s

F = 421.83N

W = FsCos

W = 421.83N x 66.2 m x (Cos 32)

W = 23681.8669

W = 24000 J

Is this right, or did I do this wrong? If I did do this wrong can someone help me?
