(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. If your are walking down a flight of stairs would the sign of work be negative, positive or zero?

2. Well work =FCOS Theta Delta X.

3. SO I think it would be negative. My reasoning is that the normal force of the person walking down a flight of stairs is in the opposite direction of the gravitational force, so the result is negative work. Does this logic sound correct?
