  1. In your "C" answer, second line, you should have used 0.08m, not 0.0888m (that was the K constant).

    Therfore, the result is W=Fd= 71*0.08= 5.68 Joules

  3. Wo = mg = 2.50kg * 9.8N/kg = 24.5N. =
    Weight of objedt.

    A. Fk = Wo / d = 24.5 / 2.76 = 8.88N/cm

    B. d=(1.25kg/2.50kg) * 2.76cm = 1.38cm

    C. F = 8.88N/cm * 8cm = 71N.
    W = Fd = 71 * 0.0888m = 6.31 Joules.
