A hardworking ant must supply 0.00955 N to pull a small piece of fruit at constant velocity over a distance of 8.60 cm up a small hill to the entrance of the colony. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the piece of fruit and the 16.2° sloped hill is 0.540, calculate the work done by the ant by pulling the piece of fruit up the hill.
W = F * d = 9.55*10^-3 * 8.6*10^-2=
82.13*10^-5 = 8.21*10^-4 Joules.
