A force of 75 newtons is used to push an object. Once a total of 300 joules of work has been done on the object, how far will it have moved?

Four metres.


Since the definition of work states it to be the product of the force applied and the distant travelled, and since one joule is sufficient energy to result in one newton of force moving an object one metre, a 75 N force will require 75 joules to move an object one metre.

Three hundred joules #(4xx75)# will be enough energy to move that same object four metres.
