How much work is done by a forklift raising
a 400 N crate from the ground to a height of 14 meters? (Show your work!)
How far would a ball have to roll if it
had 40 N of force and was doing 170 J of work? (Show your work!)
How much power is required to push a box
with a force of 10 N over 20 m in 30 seconds? (Show your work!)
How much work is done by a machine with
a power output of 50,000 Watts if it has been running for a minute and
a half? (Show your work!)
Using the definition of mechanical advantage,
what is the output force when the input force is 4 N and the input distance
is 16 meters while the output distance is 12 meters?
