Physics of Work

I currently have a job at wegmans as a cashier and it is quite the job. meeting and greeting those who come through my line. It is easy to see that there is plenty of work being done. My manager came to me the other day with a fun face that I life about 700lbs or 317.5Kg. To determine the amount of work that I do at work, I can use the formula W=Fd. This formula also breaks down into W=(m)(g)(h). To determine the amount of work I do in placing the groceries into the cart I can use this formula.

W=(317.5kg)(9.81m/s^2)(.6m)

By doing this math, I was able to find out that my work output is 1868.8J.

No wonder why I am so tired after my 6 hour shift.
