Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Help on Monday, October 3, 2011 at 7:36pm.

Tarzan, who weighs 917 N, swings from a vine through the jungle. How much work is done by the tension in the vine as he drops through a vertical distance of 3.85 m?

Simply calculating;

W=(917N)*(3.85m)= 3530.45 J

Isn't working, I'm not sure how to apply the work equation.
