(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A force F=-4.3i+2.0j+1.5k Newtons exerts a displacement of d=-0.8i+1.8j+-3.6k metres upon a small (ie mass is negligible) object. If the friction force is equal to Ffr=-0.2,, then what is the net work done upon the object?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know the net work is the sum of all the individual work and the work equation is W=F.D. So i tried to work out the work of the initial force stated by multiplying the force and displacement stated which i got 1.64J. I think the only other work is caused by the friction force but when i try to work that out (because the mass is negligable) i get 0. Can someone please help?
