In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the work done by a force as the product of the force’s magnitude and the distance through which the force acts.
Sample Question Videos
How much work does a supermarket checkout attendant do on a can of soup he pushes 0.600 m horizontally with a force of 5.00 N?
A force varies with position, as shown in the accompanying figure. Find the net work done by this force on a particle while the particle changes its position from to .
A constant force of 20 N pushes a small ball in the direction of the force over a distance of 5.0 m. What is the work done by the force?
