What are the quantities on which the amount of work done depends ? How are they related to work ?

Answer

Following are the quantities on which the amount of work done depends:  

a) magnitude of the force.
 b) distance through which the body moves

  Force and distance are related to work done as work done is directly proportional to the force applied and the distance moved by the body. 

 W = Fs  
Where,  W is the work done  F is the force applied  s is the distance
