A 45 N girl sits on a 8 N bench. How much work is done on the bench? What is the work?
The definition of work states that work is done on an object whenever a force is applied to an object, and that object is made to move a distance:
In this situation, the force is applied, but no motion occurs. Hence, no work is done by this force.
Unfortunately, I cannot see the point of the question "What is the work?" because there is none!
