How much work do you do when you push a shopping cart with a force of 50 N for a distance of 5 m?

Dec 1, 2015

$W = 250 N m$.

Explanation:

We have:
Force (F) = 50N
Displacement (s) = 5m.

As we know, we calculate work as:
Work = Force * Displacement in direction of Force,
$W = F \cdot s$,
$W = 50 \cdot 5$,
$W = 250 N m$. So,
The work done is $250 N m$ (Newton meters).

Hope it Helps! :D .
