Frictionless pulley problem

  1. Mar 12, 2007 #1
    An old oaken bucket of mass 6.75 kg hangs in a well at the end of a rope. The rope passes over a frictionless pulley at the top of the well, and you pull horizontally on the end of the rope to raise the bucket slowly a distance of 4.00 m.

    How much work do you do on the bucket in pulling it up?
