A construction crew pulls up an 87.5-kg load using a rope thrown over a pulley and pulled by an electric motor. They lift the load 15.1 m and it arrives with a speed of 15.6 m/s having started from rest. Assume that acceleration was not constant.
a. How much work (J) was done by the motor?
b. How much work was done by gravity?
