Define work

Relate work to force and distance

Define work in terms of SI and English units

Mathematically manipulate the work equation

Provide real world examples

This packet is presented in an interactive video format. The main goal is to define the scientific term work and relate it to force and distance. SI and English units are shown with a conversion factor for working between these two units. Examples are provided for real world examples of work. Much of the packet is devoted to showing how to mathematically use the work equation. An assessment is provided at the end of the packet.

Tutorial

This packet provides an introductory look at scientific work. It is meant for a beginning physics course or a review for students needing practice. The mathematical quantities are all treated as scalar quantities, therefore, no vector analysis is discussed in this packet.
