Question

# A bucket full of water is drawn up by a person. In this case the work done by the gravitational force is:negative because the force and displacement are in opposite directions.positive because the force and displacement are in the same direction.negative because the force and displacement are in the same direction.positive because the force and displacement are in opposite directions.

A
positive because the force and displacement are in the same direction.
B
negative because the force and displacement are in the same direction.
C
negative because the force and displacement are in opposite directions.
D
positive because the force and displacement are in opposite directions.
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### As the gravitational force acts downward and the displacement of the bucket is upward, force acts opposite to the displacement of the body. The work done being a dot product of force and displacement vectors, becomes negative as cosine of 1800 is −1.

Same amount of force 10 N is acting on two bodies in two different ways.
Case 1: Force is acting in the direction of displacement of the body.
Case 2: Force is making an angle of 60° with the direction of displacement.
If the displacement is 'd' meters in both the cases, then what is the relation between the work done in both the cases?
