# Calculation of Work Done by Force Displacement Graph

Let a body, whose initial position is xi, is acted upon by a variable force (whose magnitude is changing continuously) and consequently the body acquires its final position xf (Fig. 5).

Fig. 5

âˆ´
= Area under curve between xi and xf

i.e., area under force displacement curve with proper algebraic sign represents work done by the force.
