3) In chapter 6 you learned that the quantity called “work” is the product of the force acting on an object and distance it travels: W = Fx . If the force F is not constant, then work is the area under the curve of a graph of force vs. distance The area bounded by the F curve, the x -axis, and two vertical lines at x 1 and x 2 is the work done by force F as the object moves between x 1 and x 2 . The work can be approximated by breaking up the area under the curve into a series of rectangles. Each rectangle is one grid square wide. The height of each rectangle is equal to the approximate value of F in the middle of the rectangle. The total area under the curve is the sum of the areas of all the rectangles. Calculate the work
