A single constant forceF= (3i + 5j) N acts on a 4.00 kg particle. Calculate the work done by this force if the particle moves from the origin to the point having the vector positionr= (2i - 3j)m.

2. Relevant equations

W= Fr

Wg= mgy1-mgy2

Wc= Ui - Uf

3. The attempt at a solution

First I converted the friction and position coordinates to a single number.

Then I tried to simply multiply the force and position but it was incorrect.

The equations my book gave me was for gravity, spring, and potential but I feel like these equations don't fit in with the problem. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your time!
