# Magnitudes of Work

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

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

Who does more work in total?
