parallel to the displacement times the displacement of a

body.

displacement of a body.

Equation :

W = F •s

W = ( F cos θ ) s = Fs cos θ

It is a scalar quantity.

Dimension :

[W ] = [ F ][ s ]

[W ] = ML2T −2

The S.I. unit of work is kg m2 s− 2 or joule (J).

(J)

The joule (1 J) is defined as the work done by a force of 1 N

which results in a displacement of 1 m in the direction of

the force.

1 J = 1 N m = 1 kg m s

Work done by a variable force

Figure 4.1 shows a force, F whose magnitude changes with the

displacement, s.

For a small displacement, ∆s1 the force remains almost

constant at F1 and work done therefore becomes ∆W1=F1 ∆s1 .

Sign for work.

W = Fs cos θ

If 0°<θ <90° (acute angle)

angle then cosθ > 0 (positive value)

therefore

W > 0 (positive) ⇒ work done on the system ( by

the external force) where energy

is transferred to the system.

If 90°<θ <180° (obtuse angle)

angle then cosθ <0 (negative

value) therefore

W < 0 (negative) ⇒ work done by the system

where energy is transferred

from the system.

Example 12 :

An elevator has a mass of 1.5 Mg and is carrying 15 passengers

through a height of 20 m from the ground. If the time taken to lift

the elevator to that height is 55 s. Calculate the average power

required by the motor if no energy is lost. (Use g = 9.81 m s−2 and

the average mass per passenger is 55 kg)
