work done to lift the body= massx9.8xdistance ( F.S)
500 x 9.8 x 50
= 245000 J

A 500 kg elevator is pulled upward with a constant force of 5500 N for a distance of 50.0 m
The net work done on the elevator as it moves upwards is stored in the form of gravitational potential energy. The difference in the potential energy of the 500 kg elevator at the point it is initially and at the point 50 m upwards is m*g*h = 500*9.8*50 = 245000
The net work done on the elevator as it is moved upwards 50 m due to the force acting on it is equal to 245 kJ.
