Define 1 J of work?


Work is the product of the component of the force in the direction of the displacement and the magnitude of this displacement.

The above statement is expressed as follows:

W = (F cos θ) d

W = F. d


  • W is the work done by the force.
  • F is the force, d is the displacement caused by the force
  • θ is the angle between the force vector and the displacement vector

1 J is the amount of work done by a force of 1 N on an object that displaces it through a distance of 1 m in the direction of the applied force.

1 J = 1 N x 1 m
