## Homework Statement

Assume that a force acting on an object is given by F=axi+byj, where a=2.9 N/m and b=3.9 N/m. Determine the work done on the object by this force as it moves in a straight line from the origin to r=(10.0i +21.5j)

## The Attempt at a Solution

i used the given info to calculate the magnitude of the Force. F=2.9(10)+3.9(21.5)=112.9. i then calculated the distance traveled by doing arctan (21.5/10)=23.7. W=FΔx, W=112.9x23.7=2675. which is wrong, apparently the answer is roughly 1000 J.
