# What is displacement as related to work?

Apr 9, 2018

Through an equation.

#### Explanation:

Work is represented by the equation,

$W = F \cdot d$

• $F$ is the force in newtons

• $d$ is the distance moved in meters

Now, the distance moved is also the displacement of the object. If the object doesn't move, even if $10$ millions newtons of force was applied, there'll still be no work done.

But, if an object moves, then work is done.
