Question

Give some examples where it seems that work is being done, but according to the definition of work done in physics, no work is done.


Solution

Pushing a box across the floor is work, so is carrying a box. Holding a heavy box is NOT work because you need to use a force to move an object through a distance. Holding a box does not fulfil the distance requirement.

Walking up stairs or walking downstairs is work because you are moving. Getting out of bed in the morning and walking to the bathroom is work.
