Answer:1788.402 MJ

Explanation:Work done = Force (N) x distance (m)

First we have to convert distance into metres:

173.8 x 1000 = 173,800 m

Then plug these values into the equation above:

173,800 x 10290 = 1788402000 J

The reason it’s Joules (the unit for energy) is because work done = energy transferred

Now we have to convert Joules into Mega Joules:

1 J = 1/1000000 MJ

1788402000 J = 1788402000/ 1000000 = 1788.402 MJ
