Lesson Plan: Work Done by a Force Expressed in Vector Notation Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to calculate the work done by a constant force vector acting on a body over a displacement vector using the dot product.
Students will be able to
- calculate the work done by a force when the force and position of the particle are given as vectors,
- find the work done by a force in vector form when the displacement is given in terms of time.
Students should already be familiar with
- dot products.
