## Homework Statement

Assume that a force acting on an object is given by , where the constants = 2.9 and = 3.9 . Determine the work done on the object by this force as it moves in a straight line from the origin to = (10.0 + 21.5).

## The Attempt at a Solution

well... what i did first was i found the length of the tangent of the distance. (using the pythagorean theorem, to get 23.7m).

i don't really know what to do with the other given information. i thought maybe i could plug the given constants into the equation graph and then find the length of the tangent of the force (which i got to be 4.86 N) and then just plug into the equation W=FΔx, but that is incorrect.

apparently the answer is roughly 1000 J, but I am obviously not getting that as my answer.
