 Homework Statement:

A force F=Fx ı +Fy j with Fx =50N and Fy =12N is exerted on a particle as the particle moves along the x axis from x=1.0m to x=5.0m.
(a) Determine the work done by the force on the particle.
(b) What is the angle be tween the force and the particle’s displacement?
 Relevant Equations:
 W=F*x
Since we don't know how far does it move in yaxis, I assumed that only xcomponent does work.
a) W=Fx*Δx = 50N*(6m) = 300 J
b) Θ = arctan(12/50) = 13.5°
But, I'm not sure that did I do this in right way...h
