Derivation of w=mgh
Asked by sanjeevrao.2704 | 4th Jun, 2020, 08:43: AM
If a body of mass m moves down from a height h, the forceof gravity or weight acts on the body through a displacement h.
Thus, work done by the force of gravity is
W= Force × displacement
=Weight × height
= mg × h
Thus, work done by force of gravity, W =mgh
Similarly, if the body is thrown up to a height h, the work done by gravity is
W = - mgh

- a coolie with a load of 30kg on his head, walks on the platform. if he walks a distance of 60m what is the work done by the coolie? how much energy is gained by a box of mass 20kg when a man runs carrying the box with a speed of 3m/s to catch the bus? what is the difference in the answers in these two questions? is the meaning the same, please explain.
