You apply a constant force to a 380-kg car as the car travels 48.0 m in a direction that is 240.0o counterclockwise from the +x-axis. How much work does the force you apply do on the car?

Solution 12E Introduction We will first write down the displacement in component form. Then we can easily calculate the dot product and find out the work done by the force. Step 1 The angle in this problem with x axis is counterclockwise, that is the angle is positive with x axis. Now the displacement is d = 48.0 m And the angle is = 240.0° with x axis. Hence the x component of the displacement...
