Physics

A rope is tied to a box and used to pull the box 1.7 m along a horizontal floor. The rope makes an angle of 30∘ with the horizontal and has a tension of 5 N. The opposing friction force between the box and the floor is 1 N.
Part A
How much work does gravity do on the box?
Part B
How much work does the tension in the rope do on the box?
Part C
How much work does the friction do on the box?
Part D
How much work does the normal force do on the box?
Part E
What is the total work done on the box?
