Work done by a Constant Force

Let a constant force 39261.png be applied on the body such that it makes an angle θ with the horizontal and body is displaced through a distance 40794.png (Fig. 1).

or 39248.png = Fs cos θ
 
Thus, work done by a force is equal to the scalar or dot product of the force and displacement of the body.
 
If a number of forces 39242.png are acting on a body and shift from position vector 39236.png to position vector 39230.png, then
