Estimate the work you do to mow a lawn 14m by 23m with a 0.5m-wide mower. Assume you push with a force of about 15N.

• Physics -

work= horizontal force*distance

so it looks like distance is 23m*28 lengths.

I push at about a 45 degree angle, so my horizOntal pushing force is 15*.7 about

work= you do it.
