Work and Energy – Notes
Work done by force acting on an object is equal to the magnitude of the force multiplied by the displacement of the direction of the force.
Conditions for work to be done:
- A net force should act on an object.
- The object must be displaced in the direction of the net force.
Definition of work: Work is said to be done when an object is displaced on applying a certain force.
Work done is the product of force and displacement: (W = F x s)
