Explain how force, energy and work are related?

Whenever a force is applied to an object, causing the object to move, work is done by the force. If a force is applied but the object doesn’t move, no work is done; if a force is applied and the object moves a distance d in a direction other than the direction of the force, less work is done than if the object moves a distance d in the direction of the applied force.

There is a strong connection between work and energy, in a sense that when there is a net force doing work on an object, the object’s kinetic energy will change by an amount equal to the work done:
