An applied force of 30 kn moves a load a distance of 10cm.

Work Done = Force applied x distance
(joules)

The problem is not the calculator, it is the units.

$30~kN = 30 \times 1000~N$ <-- The symbol for the unit "Newtons" is capitolized.

$10~cm = 10 \times \frac{1}{100}~m$

So
$W = 30 \times 1000 \times 10 \times \frac{1}{100}~Nm$
is what?
