Work done by gravity depends solely on the vertical displacement of the body. It doesn't rely on the trail of the body. Therefore, work done by gravity is given by the expression,

W= m g h

Where,

Vertical displacement, h = 0 ∴

**∴** W= mg × zero = 0

Therefore the work done on the body by gravity is therefore zero.

Soni says that the acceleration in an object could be zero even when several forces are acting on it. Do you agree with her? Why?

In each of the following a force, F is acting on an object of mass, m. The direction of displacement is from west to east shown by the longer arrow. Observe the diagrams carefully and state whether the work done by the force is negative, positive
