If the object is moving in a straight line and the displacement and the force are known, the work done by the force can be calculated as ⃗ ∣ ∣ W = F ⋅s = F s c∣ ∣ ∣ ∣⃗ , ⃗ ⃗ where W is the work done by force F on the object that undergoes displacement s directed at angle θ relative toF . Note that depending on the value of cosθ , the work done can be positive, negative, or zero. In this problem, you will practice calculating work done on an object moving in a straight line. The first series of questions is related to the accompanying figure. Part A ⃗ What can be said about the sign of the work done by the force F 1 ANSWER: It is positive. It is negative. It
