4.10 Energy transferred Vs. Work done

Understand that work done is equal to energy transferred
  • Work done (measured in Joules) is equal to the Force (in Newton’s) multiplied by the distance moved (in metres).
  • 1 Joule is the work done when a force of 1 Newton moves through a distance of 1 metre (in the direction of the force) i.e. when 1 Newton is transferred 1 metre
  • \Work done = energy transferred
