right now were covering energy and work in class. I have a question: If a force is applied over a given distance D, along the path of the particle, then what property of the particle will increase by F*D?

so its energy? It isn't work cause work isnt a property of the particle.

You can consider "work" to be a type of energy. Doing work to an object increases its total energy by exactly the amount of work done.
