A body constrained to move along the z-axis of a coordinate system is subject to a constant force F given by

F =$$-\hat{i}+2\hat{j}+3\hat{k}F\;N$$

where i, j, k, are unit vectors along the x- y- and z-axis of the system respectively. What is the work done by this force in moving the body at a distance of 4 m along the z-axis?

##### Solution :-

The body is displaced by 4 m along z-axis

$$\vec{S} =0\hat{i}+0\hat{j}+4\hat{k}S$$

$$\vec{F} =-\hat{i}+2\hat{j}+3\hat{k}F$$

Work done,

W =$$\vec{F}.\vec{S} = (0\hat{i}+0\hat{j}+4\hat{k})(-\hat{i}+2\hat{j}+3\hat{k})$$

= 12$$(\hat{k}.\hat{k})$$ Joule = 12 Joule
