A kg air compressor is dragged up a rough incline from m to m, where the axis is vertical. How much work does gravity do on the compressor during this displacement?
Work done by gravity is J
Mass of the air compressorKg
We have to determine the work done by gravity on the air compressor
It is given that air compressor is being dragged up ab incline, hence the displacement is against gravity in opposite direction to gravity force. Gravity acts downward and taking downward direction as axis we will calculate the work done
The negative sign of work indicates that the work done by gravity is against the force applied to drag air compressor up
