A car of mass 1500 kg rolls down a hill for a distance of 150 m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the road makes an angle of 15º with the horizontal, how much work is done on the car by the force of gravity?

would I use the formula

W=fdcosº

w=(f)(150m)(15º)

For force would I convert 1500kg into newtons and plug that into the formula?

Thanks :)
