What I am Learning in Physics:



Right now we are in the unit of work and power. Work is the process of moving an object by applying a force. And for a force to have done work on an object it must have caused a displacement. And also the force and displacement must be in the same direction. The formula is W=Fd. The W standing for worl. The F as the force. And the d standing for the displacement. And the units for work is joules. Power is the rate at which work is done. The same amount of work can be done with different supplied power if the time is different. The formula for power is, P=W/t. And the units for power are watts. Part of this unit is energy. But we haven't learned anything about it yet. But i am hoping to learn about energy this week.
