Make better use of this total work calculator tool that gives the result in a fraction of seconds. For that, you need to give the inputs in the input fields and click on the calculate button which is shown below the input fields.

### What is Total Work?

To complete a particular task or work the amount of energy that is transferred by applying some force is called work. This is known as the work-energy principle. Total work is denoted by the symbol 'WT. Let us see the formula for calculating work. Units of Total Work is 'J'.

WT = 1/2 * m * v * 2 final − 1/2 * m * v * 2 initial

Where,

m is mass.

vi is the initial velocity.

vf is final velocity.

WT is Total Work.

### How to Find Total Work?

Steps to follow to calculate total work are given below. Follow the given guidelines carefully.

• Note down the initial velocity, final velocity, mass as given in the problem.
• Then, apply the formula, WT = 1/2 * m * v * 2 final − 1/2 * m * v * 2 initial
• Finally, you will see the desired answer.

### Solved Example For Total Work

Example

Question: If the mass is 20kg and the initial velocity of speed is 10 m/s, and the final velocity of speed is 25 m/s. Calculate the Total Work?

Solution:

Given, input values of mass(m) = 20kg, initial velocity(Vi) = 10m/s, Final velocity (vf) = 25 m/s.

As, we already know the formula,

WT = 1/2 * m * v * 2 final − 1/2 * m * v * 2 initial

WT = 1/2 * 20 * 25 * 2 final − 1/2 * 20 * 10 * 2 initial

WT = 6250 - 1000

WT = 5250 J
