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

A force given by [tex]F(x)=5x^3 (in \frac {N}{m^3})[/tex] acts on a 1-kg mass moving on a frictionless surface. The mass moves from x = 2m to x = 6m.

a) How much work is done by the force?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]W=\int F_x from x_o to x_f [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]\int 5x^3 from x=2 to x=6 = 1.6*10^3[/tex]

Is this correct?
