Work is the result that takes place when a force is applied to an object to move it. Work can be measured by multiplying the force by the distance. It is closely related to energy. The concept referred to as work-energy principle states that an increase in the kinetic energy of an object is due to an equal amount of work performed on the object. The unit of work is the joule (J) which equals a newton-meter (N-m).
