Dimas reads that it takes 270 N to lift a firefighter’s equipment. If a firefighter does 5400 J of work carrying the equipment up a staircase, how high does the firefighter climb? (Work: W = Fd) A.20 m B.200 m C.5130 m D.1,458,000 m
Firstly, what do you think the answer is and why?
i think its D
Can you tell me why??
what i did was multiply 270 and 5400 together
so work = Force * distance We know work is 5400 J and the force is 270 N so 270 = 5400 * distance
you have to divide not multiply
ok so that means its A?
yes! (also I accidentally wrote the equation wrong 5400 = 270 * distance so yes it would be A
