The way I was thinking is that every two meters, the bucket loses some weight, and this happens 50 times along its 100m journey. If you make the formula 0.1 every meter like you have done wont that change the total work? as lifting a weight 2 meters requires more work than lifting the same weight 1 meter then dropping 0.1 and lifting it another meter right?

To be honest, I wasn't sure why the timing was even given for the question initially.
