  3. even if the body does not move.
  4. only when the body is moving.
A force F acting on an object is given by the expression [math]F(s)=(7s^(3/4)+5)[/math] Newtons, where s is the position of the object in meters. What is the work done by the force F between s = 0m and s = 1m?
  1. 6 Joules
  2. 9 Joules
  3. 10 Joules
  4. 12 Joules
  5. 17 Joules
How much energy passes through your bedroom lamp (containing a 100 W light-bulb) every evening when you read for half an hour before you going to bed?

Terrence carries a 275-N, 40" HDTV box up three flights of stairs (a height of 10.0 m) and then pushes it with a horizontal force of 50.0 N at a constant speed of 0.5 m/s for a horizontal distance of 35.0 meters. How much work does Terrence do on his 40" HDTV box during this entire motion?

A force of 63 N acts on the block at an [math]ang30deg[/math]. The block moves a horizontal distance of 3.0 m. How much work is done by the applied force?

How much work is done by an applied force to lift a 431N block 7.0 meters vertically at a constant speed?

Tony, with a mass of 78 kg, runs up three flights of the fire escape in 13.0 sec. He has gone a vertical distance of 9.0 m. Determine the amount of work done by Tony to elevate his body to this height. Assume that his speed is constant.
