The causing of motion against a resisting force. The amount of work is proportioned to, and is measured by, the product of the force into the amount of motion along the direction of the force. See Conservation of energy, under Conservation, Unit of work, under Unit, also Foot pound, Horse power, Poundal, and Erg.
The causing of motion against a resisting force, measured by the product of the force into the component of the motion resolved along the direction of the force.
Force times distance. Measured in footpounds and similar units. Example: Lifting a 200 ound barbell 8 feet and lifting a 400-pound barbell 4 feet each require 1,600 foot-pounds of work.
The distance an object moves multiplied by the force on the object; work = force x distance
The product of force and distance (measured in joules, J, the energy needed to move 1 newton (N) a distance of 1 m).
Mechanical energy
1. The change of position of an object against an opposing force. 2. The product of a force and the distance through which it acts.
Energy transferred by applying a force over a distance; lifting a mass does work against gravity, and stores gravitational potential energy.
Work includes any activity for wages or salary; for profit or fees; or for payment "in kind" such as meals, living quarters, or supplies received in lieu of cash from someone other than a family member. One hour or more of such activity constitutes work. Work also includes unpaid activity of at least 15 hours a week on a family farm or business. Respondents working as civilian employees of the Armed Forces or the National Guard are classified as working.
the force applied to an object multiplied by the distance. In all machines, input and output work are equal. Input and output work is force times distance.
Is energy in transition and is defined in units of Force times Distance. Work cannot be done unless there is movement. ( 030)
force acting over a distance
The overcoming of resistance through space as measured by the product of the force and the distance, in its own direction, over which it acts. Also used as a general term for any engineering construction or the operations connected with such construction.
The product of force and motion.
The application of force through a distance; requires energy input.
the component of force in the direction of motion of an object times the distance through which it acts as an object is moved
Effort expended to accomplish something (force times distance).
the activity of changing energy from one form to another; in human terms, the exchange may be between any forms of physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual energy
The application of force over a distance (without any limitation as to the time involved). For example, moving 80 kg over a vertical distance of 2 meters equals 160 kg-meters (kgm) of work. The same amount of work is required to accomplish this task in 1 minute or 5 minutes.
an energy transformation process which results in a change in concentration or form of energy.
(physics) a manifestation of energy; the transfer of energy from one physical system to another expressed as the product of a force and the distance through which it moves a body in the direction of that force; "work equals force times distance"
What is done when a force moves an object. No matter how much force is used, no work is done if the object does not move.
is the change in kinetic or potential energy of a particle or work is done by a force acting on an object during a displacement, .
This is done when a force moves an object; the amount of work is the product of the force and the distance moved.
Done when energy is transferred by a force. The work done by a force in displacing an object by is = Â·.
The movement of force through a distance.
To exercise a horse by galloping a pre-determined distance.
The magnitude of a force times the distance through which that force is applied. (work = force x distance)
The product of force and displacement in the direction of the force. Work is the adding of energy to an object.
