# Part A: If you lift a 10 kg object that weighs 10 N (22lbs.) from the floor and place it on a table 1.5 m high, how much work did you do and how much potential energy did you give the object? Assume no friction. Part B: You apply 10N force to an object for 10m, how much work did you do and how much kinetic energy did you give the object? Assume no friction.
