Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0None of those answers is correct. It asks for th eforce used  but the answers are in Newton metres. Force is measured in Newtons The mass of the piano (100lb) is not relevant As given above Work = F*d you are given W= 200Nm d = 5m So oyu can work out the Force in Newtons  however the answer options are NOT correct so you cannot give a correct answer if this is multichoice  the answer has unite Newtons  NOT Nm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or you could assume that the problem's author intended to use the proper units, which would yield a correct answer option, as "none of the above" is not an answer choice either :)
