Work Done in pulling up the hanging part of a chain on to a table

Share with:


A uniform chain of length L and mass M is lying on a smooth table and one-third of its length is
hanging vertically down over the edge of the table. If g is acceleration due to gravity, calculate the
work required to pull the hanging part on to the table? Is it zero?
