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

Calculate the work done by a 0.47N force pushing a 0.026kg pencil 0.26m against a force of friction of 0.23N.

Knowns:

F = 0.47N

m = 0.036kg

d = 0.26m

Ff = 0.23N

2. Relevant equations

Work = Force x Distance

3. The attempt at a solution

Since I know work = f*d, I do

w = 0.47N * 0.26m

= 0.1222J

I'm unsure of how to add friction into the calculation.
