A constant force F=4i+2j+2k moves an object along a straight line from the point (1, -5, 1) to the point (1, -1, 0).

Find the work done if the force is measured in newtons and the position is measured in meters.

2. Relevant equations

W=Fd

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the distance formula to find the distance between the two points which is sqrt(17)

But what is the correct way to multiply the Force vector by this distance?
