This question was the difference between a 13 and a 14... THIS stupid freaking question Is it me or is this a totally loaded question? Which involves more work? I need not put any force on the wire for it to go from A to B. So 0 x distance = 0.... To lift it I must put a Force on the rope F x distance =/= 0 Is this ambiguity on their part or am I just being ridiculous?
