Textbook Problem

When applying the principles of work and force,

  1. work is accomplished when force is applied to an object that does not move

  • in the metric system the measurement for work is cubic centimeters
  • no work is accomplished when an object is stopped by mechanical force
  • if a 50-pound object is moved 10 feet, 500 ft.-lb of work are produced
  • i.

    To determine

    To check: if a 50-pound object is moved 10 feet, 500 ft.lb of work are produced.

    Explanation

    Given: Force=50-pound,

    Displacement=10 feet

    Concept Used:

    We know that the work done is given by

    Work=Force×Displacement

    Calculation:

    Work=50 pound × 10 feet

    Work=500 ft
