Problem 2CQ

(Answers to odd numbered Conceptual Questions can be found in the back of the book.)

A friend makes the statement, “Only the total force acting on an object can do work.” Is this statement true or false? If it is true, state why; if it is false, give a counterexample.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 2CQ

Step 1 of 1

False, since any force acting on an object can do work because the distance and the object traveled required to figure out how much work was done. But if it doesn't move then no work has been done. Where the work done by different force may add to produce a net work.

Step 2 of 1
