The spiral shaft in a grain auger raises grain from a farmers truck into a storage bin. Assume that the auger does 6.2 x 10*5 J of work on a certain amount of grain to raise it 4.2 m from the truck to the top of the bin.What is the total mass of the grain moved?

  • Physics: energy -

    Work = M*g*H, so

    M = Work/(g*H)
