I found this equation

W=m(a+g)y

W=work required

M=mass of object

A=acceleration of the object

G=acceleration due to gravity

Y=displacement of the object

Is this the equation I should be using? I cant really figure out what my acceleration due to gravity would be since I'm going against gravity, but here is my scenario.

The object starts from a stationary position and accelerates upwards with a constant force.

Mass of object 1814kg

Acceleration 9.8m/s2

Displacement 1.291 meters

Time to cover 1.291 meters .5 seconds
