    examples of work done=force x distance What is work? Work in physics is the transfer of energy; work is done on an object when an applied force moves it through a distance. The link between work and energy is work done equals energy transferred. The units for the two are also the same (joules). E.g. 500J of work = 500J of kinetic energy. Work is calculated with the formula: work done=force x distance moved For example, if a force of 10 newton (F = 10 N) acts along point that travels 2 meters...

  • Alternative Energy

    Alternative Energy “Every day, the world produces carbon dioxide that is released to the earth’s atmosphere and will still be there in one hundred years’ time. This increased content of carbon dioxide increases the warmth of our planet and is the main cause of the so called “Global Warming Effect.” One answer to global warming is to replace current technologies with alternatives that have comparable or better performance, but do not emit carbon dioxide. We call this Alternate Energy.” (Alternative...
