How much work would it take to push a # 2 kg # weight up a # 2m # plane that is at an incline of # (5pi) / 12 #? Physics Work and Energy Work 1 Answer Steve J. · Surya K. Jan 22, 2018 #37.9J# Explanation: The formula for work is #W=Fdcostheta#. In this case the incline does not give us the required value for #theta#. We need to use the complement of the incline. #theta = "completment of incline" = "pi/2 - (5pi)/12 = (6pi)/12 - (5pi)/12 = pi/12# Here, #F=2*9.81=19.62N, d=2m, costheta=cos(pi/12)=0.9659# Now multiply: #19.62*2*0.9659# #W~=37.9J# Answer link Related questions What is a force?
