A uniform chain of length 2 m is kept on a table such that a length of 60 cm hangs freely from the edge of the table. The total mass of the chain is 4 kg. What is the work done in pulling the entire chain on the table?

• 7.2 J

• 3.6 J

• 120 J

• 1200 J

B.

3.6 J

Mass per length
= M/L
= 4/2 = 2 kg/m
The mass of 0.6 m of chain = 0.6 x 2 = 1.2 kg
The centre of mass of hanging part = 0.6 +0 /2 = 0.3 m
Hence, work done in pulling the chain on the table
W =mgh
= 1.2 x 10 x 0.3
= 3.6 J

Mass per length
= M/L
= 4/2 = 2 kg/m
The mass of 0.6 m of chain = 0.6 x 2 = 1.2 kg
The centre of mass of hanging part = 0.6 +0 /2 = 0.3 m
Hence, work done in pulling the chain on the table
W =mgh
= 1.2 x 10 x 0.3
= 3.6 J
