A 2.48 kg block is pushed 1.54 m up a vertical wall with constant speed by a constant force of magnitude F applied at an angle of 62 degrees with the horizontal. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and wall is .497, find the work done by F.

    I'd start off with a free body diagram and sum of the forces

    So do you know the x and y component of the force? Do you know how to get it?

    i know that there is friction, gravity, and the Fsintheta. do you add all three together?

    or subtract Fsintheta-(friction-gravity)

    We need force cause work = force * distance . So once we find force we can plug it into that equation and we have the distance already

    \[Fsin \theta + Fn = 0 \] \[Fcos \theta + Ff(friction) - mg = ma \] Manipulate those equations to solve for force

    'x' forces: \[N = F \cos 62\] 'y' forces: \[\mu _{k} N =\mu _{k} F \cos 62\] \[Fsin 62 = mg +\mu _{k} F \cos 62\] \[F(\sin 62- \mu _{k} \cos 62) = mg \] \[F= \frac{ mg }{ (\sin 62- \mu _{k} \cos 62)}\] calculate F; F*d = Work.

    No, 57.62 is incorrect. If you plug in the values, do you get the same answer? And I multiplied by the distance
