6.4 Integral Applications Force and Work Application Question #3 (Medium): Work Done to Vertically Lift an Object Strategy It is important to distinguish whether the units are in the International or the US metric system. Pound (lb) in the US system already includes the gravity, so it is not multiplied by . It is directly used as force. Using integral to find the work done to vertically move an object, -axis can be used to represent the vertical line along which the object moves. So any part of the segment can be considered as . Then the total weight of the object is converted into the unit mass of or . Once the force is expressed using the unit mass, that unit force is multiplied by the distance the segment travels, and that expression is integrated over the whole interval to calculate the total work done: ∫ . Sample Question cement package is lifted from the ground to the top of a building that is high. The rope that pulls the metal tray containing the cement package weighs . The metal tray weighs . Calculate the total work done. S
