                Observe the diagrams carefully and state whether the work done by the force is negative, positive or zero.

                

Answers (1)

(i) In first case, the force acting on the object is perpendicular to the displacement of the body. Thus the work done by the force is zero.

(ii) In this, the force is in direction of the displacement so the work done is positive.

(iii) In this case, the direction of force and displacement are opposite to each other. Thus the work done by the force is negative.
