Work - Physics


  • Work (physics), the work done by, or energy transferred by, a force acting through a distance
  • Work (electrical), the work done by, or energy transferred by, a force from an electric field acting on a charge though a distance
  • Work (thermodynamics), the quantity of total energy transferred from one system to another, not counting energy transferred by heat
  • Mechanical work, a subset of work (physics) with the connotation that the force doing work is a "mechanical," pressure, or contact-type force

Famous quotes containing the word physics:

    But this invites the occult mind,
    Cancels our physics with a sneer,
    And spatters all we knew of denouement
    Across the expedient and wicked stones.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Now the twitching stops. Now you are still. We are through with physiology and theology, physics begins.
    Alfred Döblin (1878–1957)

    Although philosophers generally believe in laws and deny causes, explanatory practice in physics is just the reverse.
    Nancy Cartwright (b. 1945)
