(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You have a chain of length 10m with 80kg, how much work does it take to lift this chain from one end to 6ft?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\delta = \frac{10}{80} = .125[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]W = \int{F(x)}\,dx = \int^{6}_{0}{\delta lg}\,dl = \frac{\delta l^2g}{2}[/tex]

I dont think that is right though
