A small mass m is pulled over the top of a frictionless half cylinder of radius R by a massless cord passing over the top. Without using the conservation of energy, find the work done in moving the mass from the bottom to the top of the cylinder at a constant speed, in terms of m, g, and R.

2. Relevant equations

?

3. The attempt at a solution

Really not sure how to approach this... Can I somehow set up an integral?
