Work is the product of the component of the force in the direction of the displacement and the magnitude of this displacement.
The above statement is expressed as follows:
W = (F cos θ) d
W = F. d
- W is the work done by the force.
- F is the force, d is the displacement caused by the force
- θ is the angle between the force vector and the displacement vector
1 J is the amount of work done by a force of 1 N on an object that displaces it through a distance of 1 m in the direction of the applied force.
1 J = 1 N x 1 m
