  Mechanical work - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Work (abbreviated W) is the energy transferred by a force to a moving object.
Work is associated with a change in energy, but not all changes in energy can be readily analysed in terms of work.
The SI derived unit of work is the joule (J), which is defined as the work done by a force of one newton acting over a distance of one meter.

 Calculating the Amount of Work Done by Forces
In a previous part of Lesson 1, work was defined as a force acting upon an object to cause a displacement.
The work is subsequently calculated as force*displacement*cosine(theta) where theta is the angle between the force and the displacement vectors.

 Definition of Work
Work is the measure of a quantity that is capable of accomplishing Macroscopic Motion of a System due to the action of a Force over a Distance.
Do not confuse the work you do to create a force with the work done by the force you create; they are not the same.
Work is related to the distance a force moves an object and not the time it takes to move the object.

 Definition and Mathematics of Work
The effect that work has upon the energy of an object (or system of objects) will be investigated; the resulting velocity and/or height of the object can then be predicted from energy information.
In physics, work is defined as a force acting upon an object to cause a displacement.
In summary, work is a force acting upon an object to cause a displacement.

 work on Encyclopedia.com
WORK [work] in physics and mechanics, transfer of energy by a force acting to displace a body.
When there is no friction and a force acts on a body, the work done by the force is equal to the increase of the kinetic and potential energy of the body, since all the energy expended by the agency exerting the force must be gained by the body.
The efficiency of a machine, which is defined as the ratio of the work output to the work input, is always less than one, since some of the input is invariably wasted in overcoming friction.

In almost all cases considered when studying mechanical forms of energy, when work is done on an object a force is applied to the object, and the object is displaced while this force is acting upon it.
The amount of work is calculated by multiplying the force times the displacement.
Now, since work is calculated as the product of force times displacement, many different combinations of forces and displacements could yield the same work, or the same energy transfer.
