work

In physics, work is the energy transferred to or from an object via the application of force along a displacement. In its simplest form, for a constant force aligned with the direction of motion, the work equals the product of the force strength and the distance traveled. A force is said to do positive work if when applied it has a component in the direction of the displacement of the point of application. A force does negative work if it has a component opposite to the direction of the displacement at the point of application of the force.For example, when a ball is held above the ground and then dropped, the work done by the gravitational force on the ball as it falls is positive, and is equal to the weight of the ball (a force) multiplied by the distance to the ground (a displacement). If the ball is thrown upwards, the work done by the gravitational force is negative, and is equal to the weight multiplied by the displacement in the upwards direction.
Both force and displacement are vectors. The work done is given by the dot product of the two vectors. When the force F is constant and the angle θ between the force and the displacement s is also constant, then the work done is given by:

If the force is variable, then work is given by

s






{\displaystyle W=\int {\vec {F}}\cdot d{\vec {s}}}

where



d



s






{\displaystyle d{\vec {s}}}
is the tiny change in displacement vector.
Work is a scalar quantity, so it has only magnitude and no direction. Work transfers energy from one place to another, or one form to another. The SI unit of work is the joule (J), the same unit as for energy.

    When do you listen to music the most?

    I listen to music when I engage in my freelance work online. I just put on my earphones and listen to my favorite playlists. Sometimes in the night before I sleep, I listen to cook and soft music. It puts me in a good mood before I eventually sleep. Do you have specific time period you listen...

    General Do you work day or night shifts?

    I have always been working day shift since I started working and it's what my body is used to and very comfortable doing. I don't think it is going to be easy for me to work night shift because it is always going to mess up with my sleep and invariably affect my health negatively. Do you...

    General Do you still wear face mask at work?

    Does your workplace still have strick rules when it comes to putting on face mask today? It was something that's very demanding when the pandemic of coronavirus was hot. We are no longer forced to wear them. Do you still like putting on your face mask?

    Standing jobs?

    Who works and has to stand on their feet for 8 plus hours a day? I do. There are a lot of roles that require you to be standing rather than sitting, but these jobs could actually be done sitting down.
