The product of the force and the distance is called "work". It is equivalent to a transfer of mechanical energy.

impulse

Yes, your right.

Work is force times distance - assuming the force is applied in the same direction as the movement.

Force per unit area is called "pressure".

When the area over which a force is applied decreases, the average force applied over said area increases. In other words, the pressure (force/area) increases.

The product of the force and the distance is called "work". It is equivalent to a transfer of mechanical energy.

Work is applied to an object and the object is moved over a distance in the same direction of the applied force.

By definition, work is a force that's applied over a specific
