A man lifts a 21.1 kg bucket from a well and does 3.1 kJ of work. How deep is the well? Assume that the man lifts the bucket at constant speed. Answer in units of m.
I am not sure if I did this right:
(21.1 kg)(9.81)(d)= 3100J
d= 14.98 meters

m g h = 3,100
21.1 * 9.8 * h = 3,100
h = about 15 meters up

If a man lifts a 13.0 kg bucket from a well and does 5.00 kJ of work, how deep is the well? Assume that the speed of the bucket remains constant as it is lifted.
