Calculate the work done in each of the following situations.

a) A horse pulls a wagon with a force of 1200 N and moves it 15 m.

b) A cable lifts an elevator 16 m by using a cable with a tension force of 2500 N.

1. 1200 * 15 Joules

2500 * 16 Joules

work = Force component in direction of motion * distance moved.

I wonder why you are asking. This should be in the first sentence of the first paragraph of your text on the subject.
