A constant force of 58.3 N, directed at 31.7 degrees form horizontal, pulls a mass of 11.9 kg horizontally a distance of 2.77 m. Calculate the work done by the force.

is the force upwards, or downward.
Assuming upwards.
vertical component= 58.3sin31.7
horizontal pulling component=58.3cos31.7
work done= force*distance
58.3cos31.7*2.77
work done in the vertical
58.3*sin31.7*zero
