which means the total mass that it took to lift and the total height that the objects have fallen causes the rotation to be measured.
Work is equal to Force × distance and Force = mass × acceleration. So, to compute for Work, we can have the formula Work = mass × acceleration due to gravity × distance (height). Work is directly proportional to Force and also directly proportional to distance.
When lift the paper clips, it involves the mass of the paper clips and the acceleration due to gravity acting to it and its height as you lift it which corresponds to Work = mgh. It is also have the same formula with Potential Energy which is P.E. = mgh. Transformation of energy changes as you lift the paper clip, the PE increases. When you released it from a certain height, it transform to kinetic energy.
How much work is done in lifting a 10 kg box 1.5 m off the floor? Pls help
m (mass) = 10 kg
h (height) = 1.5 m
a (acceleration g) = 9.8 m/s²
W (work) = ? unknown
W = mgh
= 10 kg × 9.8 m/s² × 1.5 m
= 10 kg × 14.7 m²/s²
= 147 kg.m²/s²
= 147 J

Energy is the ability to do work, while WORK is the product of force and displacement. In lifting the paper clips you need to use energy in order for you to do so and when you are able to lift the paper clips the paper clips move away from its original place so displacement takes place. The standard unit used to measure energy and work done in Physics is the JOULE, which has the symbol J. In mechanics, 1 Joule is the energy transferred when a force 1 Newton is applied to an object and moves it through a distance of 1 meter.
