A force F~ = (6ˆi − 2
ˆj) N acts on a particle that undergoes a displacement ∆~r = (3ˆi + ˆj) m. Find (a) the work
done by the force on the particle and (b) the angle between F~ and ∆~r.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The magnitude of force is sqrt(6^ 2+2^2)= 6.3N with an angle of arctg-6/2=arctg(-3)=-71.56
The magnitude of displacement is sqrt(3^ 2+1^2)= 3.16m with an angle of arctg3/1=arctg(3)=71.56
The angle between F and delta r is 2*71.56=143.12
work= F. (delta r) cos teta= 6.3 *3.16*cos 143.12= -15.92 j
