A force of 7 N acts on an object. The displacement is, say 8 m, in the direction of the force. Let us take it that the force acts on the object through the displacement. What is the work done in this case?


When a force F acts on an object to move it in its direction through a distance S, the work is done

The work on the body is done by force

Work done = Force × Displacement

W = F × S


  • F = 7 N
  • S = 8 m

So, work done,

W = 7 × 8

W = 56 Nm

W = 56 J
