# Solve the following :

Question:

A block of mass $5.0 \mathrm{~kg}$ slides down an incline of inclination $30^{\circ}$ and length $10 \mathrm{~m}$. Find the work done by the force of gravity.

Solution:

Work done,

$\mathrm{W}=\mathrm{mgh}$

$=5 \times 9.8 \times\left(\sin 30^{\circ} \times 10\right)$

$W=245 \mathrm{~J}$
