Hi Shaleen, Work = Force x Displacement OR work= Force x distance now, NCERT says that if the displacement is zero, work done is zero. I want to ask you that if I travel from Mumbai to Pune, and back to Mumbai,my displacement is zero but my distance travelled is doubled. So in such a situation have I done some work or is it zero? Taking displacement as zero.
