Work & Power Practice Problems

1. A tugboat pulls a ship with a constant net horizontal force of 5.00 X 10 N
and causes the ship to move through a harbor. How much work is done on
the ship if it moves a distance of 3.00 km

2. A weight lifter lifts a set of weights a vertical distance of 2.00 m. If a constant

net force of 350 N is exerted on the weights, what is the net work done on the

3. If 2.0 J of work is done in raising a 180 g apple, how far is it lifted?

4. A 1000 kg elevator carries a maximum load of 800 kg. A constant frictional

force of 4000 N retards the elevators motion upward. What minimum power,
in kilowatts, must the motor deliver to lift the fully loaded elevator as a
constant speed of 3 m/s.
