John is lifting a 1.5 kg toy to a height of 1.2 m above the ground. How much work is done??

Remember that the equation for work is Force * Distance.
The distance in this problem is given as 1.2 m.
We can calculate the force of lifting the weight by multiplying the mass (1.5 kg) by the constant of gravity (9.8 m/s/s)
