Can someone give me examples of the following two situations and clarify each situation?
An object is stationary but the point of application of the force moves on the object. An object moves in such a way that the point of application of the force remains fixed. Moreover, what can one say about the work done by the force on the object in each case?

This sure looks like a homework assignment. Is it?
