A bucket filled with water is tied to the end of a rope and is swung around in a vertical circle. The mass of the bucket and water system is 14.5 kg. The length of the rope is 1.9 m. How much work is done by the tension force on the bucket over 1/4 of a cycle?

Zero. There is no displacement along the direction of tension, so force and displacement are perpendicular throughout the motion.
