Yep its me again... sorry for re-posting this question but I am quite desperate here and I need to have this question answered, sorry if that sounds rude.

IF 2.0 J of work is done raising g apple how far is it lifted?

I know W= Fd

hence I divided instead of multiplying and I got this: 0.11 which does not sound right. In the book makes a reference saying an apple from your waist to the top of your head is about 1J but not sure that can help.

I would appreciate any help.

    I have no idea what you mean by "g apple". The distance it is lifted is
    H= Work/(M*g)

    One needs to know the apple's mass M in order to answer the question.

    Perhaps they told you what M was, but you didn't tell us.

    I'm sorry if that sounds rude.
