Determine a) the work done by the applied force: W F = (16.0 cos25 N)(2.20 m) = 31.9 Nm = 31.9 J b) the work done by the normal force: W N = (N cos90 N)(2.20 m) = 0 J c) the work done by the force of gravity W g = (mg cos90 N)(2.20 m) = 0 J d) The work done by the net force on the block W net = (16.0 cos25 N)(2.20 m) = 31.9 J or W net = W F + W N + W g = 31.9 + 0 + 0 = 31.9 J F θ ∆ x = 2.20 m W N Examples Examples Problem 5: Problem 5: Starting from rest, a 5.00 kg block slides 2.50 m down a rough 30Starting from rest, a 5....
