definition of the joule
This is really basic, but I can't seem to find that one piece of reasoning that I must be missing...
I don't understand the definition of the joule; 'the energy given to a body if a force of 1N is applied for the distance of one meter'
If I apply 1N to an object of mass 1000kg until it has moved one meter, will I not have given it more energy than if I do the same to an object of 1 kg?
edit: oops, didn't mean to post it in learing materials... sorry.
