Because if Work is integral of F dx, and we assume F is applied only at a single instant and not maintained, and also assume the D represents the distance through which force is maintained, then Work is essentially 0 Joules because the force was maintained only in a small instantaneous distance, right? Like for a single moment you have force, then for the rest of time you have no force.

So based on this, I'm inclined to believe D represents the distance the object moves as a result of instantaneous force.
