Derive an expression for the work done when a force is acting on an object in the direction of its displacement. A pair of bullocks exerts a force of 150 N on a plough. The field being ploughed is 15 m long. How much work is done in ploughing the length of the field?

1. When a force F displaces a body through a distance s in the direction of the applied force, then the work done W on the body is given by the expression:
Work done = Force × Displacement

W = F × s

2. Work done by the bullocks is given by the expression:
Work done = Force × Displacement
W = F ×  s
Where,

Applied force, F = 150 N
Displacement, s = 15 m
W = 150  × 15 = 2250 J
Hence, 2250 J of work is done in ploughing the length of the field.
