In this lesson on Work Done Under Constant Force, which is part of Unit 3 Area of Study 3 for VCE Physics, you will learn how to:
- investigate and apply theoretically and practically the concept of work done by a constant force using:
- work done = constant force × distance moved in direction of net force
- work done = area under force-distance graph.
The following videos will guide you through work and energy, including gravitational potential energy and the related equations and theory-based around the special case of conservation of mechanical energy.
Part 1: Work, Energy and Power
Part 2: Introduction equations and examples to gravitational potential energy
Work as Area Under Curve
This video will explain the concept and provide sample problems.
