I need the equation for Newtons to Joules. as an example the question is you must exert a force of 4.5 N on a book to slide it across the table, if you do 2.7 J of work in the process, how far have you moved the book.

I am not looking for an answer just an equation to show how to do this, thanks

Newton is a unit of force. Joule is a unit of energy or work done. Power is work done per unit time, in units of Watts.

Work = Force * distance
