#color(green)(W = F cos theta * d#, Newton meter


F = Force, d = displacement

Work done = Force * Displacement

#W = vec F * vec d#

Force and displacement are vector quantities

If both F and d are in the same direction, #W = F * d#

If force is exerted at an angle of #theta# to the direction of motion, then work done

#color(green)(W = F cos theta * d#

Unit of work is Joule

1 Joule = 1 Newton meter = 1 N m
