1 joule is defined as the work done in displacing a body through 1 m under the influence of 1 N of force in the direction of force.
1 J = 1 N x 1 m
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
