- 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:
“The fundamental laws of physics do not describe true facts about reality. Rendered as descriptions of facts, they are false; amended to be true, they lose their explanatory force.”
—Nancy Cartwright (b. 1945)
“Now the twitching stops. Now you are still. We are through with physiology and theology, physics begins.”
—Alfred Döblin (18781957)
“He who is conversant with the supernal powers will not worship these inferior deities of the wind, waves, tide, and sunshine. But we would not disparage the importance of such calculations as we have described. They are truths in physics because they are true in ethics.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
