Step 1

Given:

Step 2

Calculating the work done by the force as the particle moves from x=0m to x=8m:

In a force-displacement graph, Work done is nothing but the area of the graph. The area above the x-axis is considered to be positive and the area below the x-axis is considered to be negative. Likewise, the Work done.

Step 3

Calculating the work dine by the force as the particle moves from x=8m to x=10m:

In a force-displacement graph, Work done is nothing but the area of the gr...
