Im trying to find my work when climbing up stairs. If I convert my weight into newtons, do I still need to multiply it by 9.8? Since i weigh 135, I multiplied that by 4.5 to get my weight in newtons. I then multiplied that by 9.8, after that I multiplied that by 3.0 m ( the distance of the stairs). I got a really big number(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

that okay?
