Is this correct?

work= .01 x mass x distance


mass measured in grams

distance measured in meters



Is this right??

    No. 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

    right, so in other words I would round it . . . . .
