Magnitudes of Work

Person A pushes a 2 kg2 \text{ kg} mass constantly with some force. The mass moves on a rough surface with coefficent of friction μ=0.5\mu = 0.5. The mass moves a total of 1 m1 \text{ m} at constant velocity of .2 m/s.2 \text{ m}/\text{s} while person A is pushing.

In a second experiment, a ball of mass .5 kg.5 \text{ kg} falls from a height of 2 m2 \text{ m}. Person B catches it after falling 2 m2 \text{ m}, bringing it to rest.
