In each of the following a force, F is acting on an object of mass, m. The direction of displacement is from west to east shown by the longer arrow. Observe the diagrams carefully and state whether the work done by the force is negative, positive or zero.
A pair of bullocks exerts a force of 140 N on a plough. The field being ploughed is 15 m long. How much work is done in ploughing the length of the field?
Soni says that the acceleration in an object could be zero even when several forces are acting on it. Do you agree with her? Why?
Write an expression for the work done when a force is acting on an object in the direction of its displacement.
A force of 7 N acts on an object. The displacement is, say 8 m, in the direction of the force (see the given figure). Let us take it that the force acts on the object through the displacement. What is the work done in this case?
