 PowerPedia:Mechanical work - PESWiki
Mechanical work is a force applied through a distance, defined mathmatically as the line integral of a scalar product of force and displacement vectors.
When a given quantity of mechanical energy is transferred (such as when throwing a ball, lifting a box, crushing a can, or stirring a beverage) it is said that this amount mechanical work has been done.
Both mechanical energy and mechanical work are measured in the same units as energy in general.

Work is a force acting upon an object to cause a displacement.
Mechanical energy is the energy which is possessed by an object due to its motion or its stored energy of position.
Because of the springs have mechanical energy (in the form of elastic potential energy), it is able to do work on the dart.

 The Physics Classroom
Whenever work is done upon an object by an external force, there will be a change in the total mechanical energy of the object.
If it can be assumed that no external forces are doing work upon the car as it travels from the initial summit to the end of the track (where finally an external braking system is employed), then the total mechanical energy of the roller coaster car is conserved.
While assumption that mechanical energy is conserved is an invalid assumption, it is a useful approximation which assists in the analysis of an otherwise complex motion.

 Mechanical work
Work is a scalar quantity, but it can be positive or negative.
Forms of work that are not evidently mechanical, such as electrical work, can be considered as special cases of this principle; for instance, in the case of electricity, work is done on chargedd particles moving through a medium.
The SI derived unit of work is the Joule, which is defined as the work done by a force of one newton acting over a distance of one metre in the direction of the force.

 Mechanical work
However, an alternative method is in the measurement of mechanical energy, in which no cumbersome instrumentation is required and the patient does not have to walk for a long period of time in order to reach a consistent reading, as in the case with oxygen consumption.
Since mechanical work has been previously found to be highly correlated with oxygen consumption, it would be more practical to use mechanical work in place of oxygen consumption in a pediatric clinical setting.
Therefore, the purpose of this investigation is to measure mechanical work to determine if children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) require more energy to walk than normal children do.
