work= .01 x mass x distance

mass measured in grams

distance measured in meters

Is this right??

**drwls**, Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 11:47amNo. If you want work W in Joules, that would be

W, J = (force, N)*(distance, m)

= (mass, kg)*(g,m/s^2)*(distance,m)

= 0.001 (mass, g)*9.8 m/s^2*(distance,m)

The numerical factor would be 0.0098, slightly less than 0.01
