1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The collar moves on a curved track from position A to position B, and slides with neglible friction. A force F = 10 N acts upon the collar from position A to position B, and the direction of the force is always oriented θ = 35° with a positive x axis as shown. Determine the total work done by the force F on the collar from position A to position B. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I tried finding the work done by the forces in the x and y directions. In the x direction there's: 0.175*10cos(35) = 1.433 J 0.1*10sin(35) = 0.574 J I then tried taking the magnitude of this, but the answer should be 8.60 J, which i obviously won't get. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
