Work is calculated by multiplying by.

Expert Solution
To determine

When multiplying _____ with ______ work is obtained.

Explanation of Solution

Work can be said to be done on a body or object if force acting on the body or the object moves the body/object by some distance in the direction of the force. As the work done depends on the direction of the applied force, so it is calculated as:

Work = Force×Displacement

For example, consider a body at rest. A force of 25 N is acting on the body as shown in the figure below.
