# What is the Total Work Against Gravity for a Laborer Carrying Sacks of Rice?

• playlistism
In summary, a laborer weighing 600N needs to carry 5 sacks of rice from the ground to the second floor of a storehouse. The distance between floors is 3.5m and each sack weighs 50kg. To find the total work done against gravity, the laborer must carry one sack at a time. However, the question may contain a mistake as kg is not a unit of force or weight. It is recommended to double check the question and follow the guidelines in the Homework forum to receive help.

A laborer who weighs 600N is to carry 5 sacks of rice from the ground to the second floor of a storehouse. If the distance betweeen floors is 3.5m and the weight of each sack is 50kg of force, find the total work done against gravity if the laborer carries only one sack at a time.

bump, please i really need help

anyone use this forum ?

1. You posted in the wrong forum (it has been moved). Notice that the 2nd forum listed from the TOP is the Homework/Coursework forum.

2. Look at the guidelines required in the Homework forum. You can't just ask someone to do the whole problem for you. You must show what you have attempted, what you know, and where exactly did you get stuck. No one will do your homework for you.

Zz.

I will make one hint -- double check the question. Kg is not a unit of force or weight.

## 1. How do I solve a "Quick Physics Problem"?

To solve a "Quick Physics Problem", you will need to follow these steps:1. Identify the known and unknown variables.2. Choose the appropriate formula or equation to solve for the unknown variable.3. Substitute the known values into the formula or equation.4. Solve for the unknown variable using basic algebra.

## 2. What are some common formulas used in "Quick Physics Problems"?
