Homework Help: Work through a displacement

  1. Nov 20, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What should be the value of Work,if vertical component is 2/3 time to the horizontal component of the applied force,while displacement covered in the direction of applied force is X meters?

    2. Relevant equations

    W=F.d..................(1)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    IF horizontal comonent of force is taken as F
    then vertical component will be equal to 2/3 : F = 2/3F so then find the magnitude of the force
    F=F^2 +2/3F^2 (whole underroot)
    and then put the value in equa (1).
    now tell me that am i right please?
