(a)

Find the work W done by the tension force on the elevator (in J).

W = T*d = 2.66*1.5*10^4 = 3.99*10^4 joule

(b)

Find the work W' done by the force of gravity on the elevator (in J).

W' = m*g*d = 2.4*10^3*-9,806*1.4 = -3.53*10^4 joule

Work done by Tension force = (2.66 x 10⁴ N)(1.50 m) = 3.99 x 10⁴ J

Work done by gravity = (2.40 x 10³ kg)(9.81 m/s²)(1.50 m) = 3.53 x 10⁴ J
