  1. 1200 * 15 Joules

    2500 * 16 Joules

    work = Force component in direction of motion * distance moved.

    I wonder why you are asking. This should be in the first sentence of the first paragraph of your text on the subject.

  2. this isnt "homework help"

  3. This does not help at all

  4. whats the answer to a)
