Define work as the product of pushing an object (F) over a distance (s) Solve problems using W = Fs = mas 2
Lifting a pen off the floor or lifting a brick off the floor? Pushing a wheelbarrow across a driveway or pushing the same wheelbarrow up the street? What makes each one require more work?
Work is the product of the displacement an object moves and the net force applied to the object in that same direction. W = work (J) F = force (N) s = displacement (m) m= mass (kg) a = acceleration (ms -2 )
