"a force of 104 N is applied to a 26 kg mass at an angle of 32 degrees to the horoizontal. calculate the work done when the mass is moved through a horizontal distance of 5 m."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

my answer is zero because 26kg times 9.8 m/s^2 = 255 N, so a 104N force wouldnt be enough to move it. does that sound right?
