Answer:a) 75 J

b) 37.5 J

c) 0

Explanation:Work is the force exerted on an object causing it to move, Work is the product of force and displacement. Work is not done if the force and displacement are at right angles to each other. It is given by:

[tex]Work(energy)=Fxcos(\theta)[/tex]

F is the force, x is the displacement and Θ is the angle between force and displacement.

a) Force (F) = 15N and distance (x) = 5. Since it is in the direction of the force, Θ = 0

[tex]Work(energy)=Fxcos(\theta)= 15*5*cos(0)=75J[/tex]

b) Force (F) = 15N and distance (x) = 5. Θ = 60

[tex]Work(energy)=Fxcos(\theta)= 15*5*cos(60)=37.5J[/tex]

c) Force (F) = 15N and distance (x) = 5. Θ = 90

[tex]Work(energy)=Fxcos(\theta)= 15*5*cos(90)=0[/tex]
