The term work was introduced in 1826 by the French mathematician Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis as “weight lifted through a height”.

W = Fd

The work done by a constant force of magnitude F on a point that moves a distance d in the direction of the force is the product.

For example, if a force of 10 newton (F = 10 N) acts along point that travels 2 meters (d = 2 m), then it does the work W = (10 N)(2 m) = 20 N m = 20 J.

This is approximately the work done lifting a 1 kg weight from ground to over a person’s head against the force of gravity.

Notice that the work is doubled either by lifting twice the weight the same distance or by lifting the same weight twice the distance.

Based on the above equation, ‘work’ is considered done even by just lifting up your hands.

They will tend to get heavy and tiring if you choose not to put them down at times even without any weight.

This is exactly why it is necessary to let things go.

Have a great Monday ahead!

Till then,
