Step 1

Given:

Mass = 61 kg

Distance to be covered = 55 m

Angle = 30o

Speed = 2.1 m/s

Step 2

Part (a): Work done can be calculated as: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseW = mgd, where, d is the vertical distance covered by the mass d = dsine d = 55 sin 30° d = 27.5 m W = 61×9.8× 27.5 W =16439.5J W =16.44kJ fullscreen
