```										Dear aditya,
Given
M and L are total lenght and mass of the chain. M = 4 kg L = 2 m
And let length and mass of part of chain hanging down are l and m respectively  l = 0.6 m
considering mass per unit length =>
M/L = m/l
m =  l / L * 4 = (0.6 / 2) * 4 = 1.2 kg   Tension in chain hanging down =  mg = 11.76 N    (g=9.8 m/s^2)  Force required = Tension  Displacement = 0.6 m        (part of chain hanging comes up) W= Force * Displacement = 11.76 * 0.6 = 7.056 J
All the best.

```										this q can be easily solved by considering motion of center of mass of hanging part of chain....
center of mass of hanging part lies in the middle ...
distance of center of mass from table is 30cm or 0.3m.....
workdone in pulling hanging part of chain  is equivalent to workdone in pulling center of mass of the hanging part to the table...
mass of comlete chain =4kg
mass per unit length =4/2=2kg/m
mass of 60 cm of chain=0.6*2=1.2kg
now workdone=mgH(com)
=1.2 * 10 *0.3
=3.6J
