Calculate force given work and displacement.

Example question:

How much force is required to do 110 J of work over a displacement of 12 m?


work: W = 110 J

displacement: d = 12 m

Starting formula

Algebra: Divide each side by d

Algebra: Cancel d's on right side

Algebra: Switch left and right sides

Plug in numbers with units

Divide: 110/12 = 9.166....

Final result with significant figures and unit
