# The boy lifted a bucket of water from a well 10 m deep, while doing work 784 J. What will be the weight of the bucket?

| We calculate the boy’s work using the formula:

A = F * S, where A is the work done by the boy (A = 784 J), F is the force applied by the boy (F = Fт = m * g, where m is the mass of the bucket with water, g is the acceleration of gravity (we take g = 9.8 m / s ^ 2)), S – bucket movement (well depth, S = h = 10 m).

A = F * S = m * g * h.

Let’s calculate the mass of a bucket of water:

m = A / (g * h) = 784 / (9.8 * 10) = 8 kg.

Answer: The mass of a bucket of water is 8 kg.
