# Three hundred joules of energy are used to push an object with a force of 75 newtons. What is the maximum distance the object can move?

May 10, 2018

$4$ meters

#### Explanation:

Work done is given by the equation,

$W = F \cdot d$

• $W$ is the work done in joules

• $F$ is the force exerted in newtons

• $d$ is the distance moved in meters

Therefore, the distance moved here is:

$d = \frac{W}{F}$

$= \left(300 \setminus \text{J")/(75 \ "N}\right)$

$= 4 \setminus \text{m}$
