## Answers ( )

• the gravitational force of the counterweight is 19.6 N
• the work done is 9.8 J

Explanation:

Question 1:

Given;

a counterweight of mass, m = 2-kg

distance moved by this weight, d = 0.5 meters

the gravitational force of the counterweight is calculated as;

F = mg

where;

F is gravitational force

m is the mass

g is acceleration due to gravity

F = 2 x 9.8 = 19.6 N

Thus, the gravitational force of the counterweight is 19.6 N

Question 2:

Given;

a counterweight of mass, m = 2-kg

height moved by this weight, h = 0.5 meters

the work done is calculated as;

Work done = Force x distance moved by this weight

Work done = 19.6 x 0.5 = 9.8 J

Thus, the work done is 9.8 J
