Mechanical Work A force acting through a given distance results in work If F is constant, then W = Fs If F is not constant, then we consider small amounts of work and add them up  22 11 () WF s d s W W F s d s    s F Position 1 Position 2

Mechanical Work (contd.) In thermodynamics, we must have two important conditions for mechanical work interaction between a system and its surroundings » movement of the boundary of the given system » either a resisting force or a driving force for such motion of the boundary » if any one of the above is absent, there is no boundary work
