# What effect will the direction of the applied force to a book have on the amount of work being done?

The work being done will be increased if you pick it up instead of dragging it due to the friction.

### Which direction does friction work?

Friction's direction is always against the direction work is being applied to.

### Which direction does friction always work?

Friction's direction is always against the direction work is being applied to.

### What kind of pulley changes the direction of the input force but does not change the amount of the force you apply?

They pulley is applied by the output force and then it is being added on by the input work.

### What is an arrow showing the direction of force?

Force arrows were developed by Isaac Newton and is a universal representation of force. The force arrow represents the direction a force was being applied to and the length of the arrow represented the amount of force being applied. Hope this helps... If not... TOO BAD! JKJKJK

### What work is being done when pulling?

It is the pulling force applied multiplied by the displacement of the object being pulled in the direction of the pulling force.

### Why does my 115v motor start in different directions each time it's energized?

It's due to the cheap design of the motor. When the motor stops, there is some torque being applied to it against the direction that it was moving. The more torque being applied, the more energy is required to get it rotating. So since there is torque in one direction, it will require less energy to get going in the opposite direction of that last time it was running, therefore to save money, it's better to have it turn the opposite direction. A better, more expensive motor will be able to easily supply enough energy to overcome the torque being applied after it stops, so it can always move in one direction.

### Where is tern balance used or applied?

BALANCED :- it is used to show or represent the even distribution of weight or amount .and APPLIED :-to put pratical use as opposed to being theoretical.

### What affects the acceleration of an object?

An object's acceleration is the result of a force being applied to it. When that happens, the magnitude of the resulting acceleration is equal to the force divided by the object's mass, and the direction of the acceleration is in the direction of the force.

### What kind of pulley changes the direction of the input force but does not change the amount of force you apply?

A simple pulley is a rope (or chain or belt) with one wheel this may be a class 1 or class 2 pulley.For a class 1 pulley, the pulley is stationary and the force applied to the rope is in the opposite direction as the movement of the object.For a class 2 pulley, the pulley is attached to the moving object and the force applied to the rope is in the same direction as the motion of the object.A compound pulley, consisting of an arrangement of more than one simple pulley, provides many other possibilities with the direction of force either the same direction or the opposite direction of the motion of the object being moved.

### When a force is applied that moves an object in the direction of the applied force is gravity done?

Gravity is indeed a force, but only one out of many. magnetic, frictional, mechanical ... . When an ordinary force applied to an object, (me pushing my wheelbarrow) this would not be considered as being affected by gravity.

### How it is friction related with work?

Work = Force x Distance Friction is a force usually operating in the opposite direction to the force being applied. Thus friction adds to the size of the force applied and work is increased.
