Calculate the work done.<br>Solution:<br>Use WD = F x d = 20N x 5m<br>WD = 100Nm<br>Note that energy transformed = work done. Energy is measured in Joules (J) so Nm must be the same unit as J.<br>This means we can say that WD = 100J</li> <div class="sign-up-notice-after-excerpt-two" style="background-color:powderblue;"> You are viewing an excerpt of this lesson.
