He then walks 12 m on the roof climbs down another vertical 7.0-m ladder and finally walks on the ground back to his starting point. How much work is done on him by gravity (a) as he climbs up; (b) as he climbs down; (c) as he walks on the roof and on the ground? (d) What is the total work done on him by gravity during this round trip? (e) On the basis of your answer to part (d) would you say that gravity is a conservative or nonconservative force? Explain.

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
