Chapter 7 Work and Kinetic Energy Work is an energy transfer : If energy is transferred to the system (object) Work is positive If energy is transferred from the system (object) Work is negative The work W is the product of the component of the force in the direction of What is Work? the displacement and the magnitude of the displacement : W = F d = Fd cos θ ( scalar or dot product ) Chapter 7 Work and Kinetic Energy An object is displaced on a frictionless, horizontal surface The normal force n and the force of gravity m g do not work F is the only force doing work on the object
