8-9. An average force of 40 N compresses a coiled spring a distance of 6 cm. What is the work done by the 40-N force? What work done by the spring? What is the resultant work? Work40 = (40 N)(0.06 m) = 2.40 J, (positive work)
Worksp = (-40 N)(0.06 m) = -2.40 J, (negativework)
Resultant work = Σ(works) = 2.4 J – 2.4 J = 0 J
Work is positive when force is with displacement, negative when against displacement.
8-10. A horizontal force of 20 N drags a small sled 42 m across the ice at constant speed. Find the work done by the pulling force and by the friction force. What is the resultant force?
Work40 = (20 N)(24 m) = 2.40 J,(positive work)
Worksp = (-20 N)(24 m) = -2.40 J, (negative work)
Resultant force and, hence, resultant work are zero.

F = (kN = (kmg F = 0.2(10 kg)(9.8 m/s2) = 19.6 N
Work = FR s = (P – F)s; Work = (26 N – 19.6 N)(20 m)Work = 128 J

*8-12. A rope making an angle of 350 drags a 10-kg toolbox a horizontal distance of 20 m. The tension in the rope is 60 N and the constant friction force is 30 N. What work is done by the rope? What work is done by friction? What is the resultant work?
(Work)rope = (60 N) cos 350 (20 m);(Work)r = 983 J
