Yes, as stated, it is 12 x 5 = 60 Nm or 60 J


Work done = energy transferred = force x distance

Don’t worry about this bit if you haven’t got to it yet, but at higher levels this equation becomes a little more complex as the force and the distance moved are both vectors so the direction of both has an effect. In this case we consider the displacement, s instead of the distance and the angle between them, #theta# so the equation becomes:
#W = vec F.vec s. costheta#

we use the Equation:
Work done = Force#*#distance


Answer: 60 Joules
