How much work do you do when you push a shopping cart with a force of 50 N for a distance of 5 m? Physics Work and Energy Work 1 Answer Hugo C. Dec 1, 2015 Answer: #W = 250 Nm#. Explanation: We have: Force (F) = 50N Displacement (s) = 5m. As we know, we calculate work as: Work = Force * Displacement in direction of Force, #W = F * s#, #W = 50 * 5#, #W = 250 Nm#. So, The work done is #250 Nm# (Newton meters). Hope it Helps! :D . Related questions What is a force? What are some examples of work? What are some examples of displacement?
