    <chemistry> Energy transferred by mechanical means, force acting over a distance. For chemical systems the sign for work is positive, if work is done on the system and negative, if work is done by the system. An example is the expansion of a gas against the external, atmospheric pressure. In this case work is negative, because it is done by t...

    [physics] In physics, a force is said to do work when acting on a body there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force. For example, when a ball is held above the ground and then dropped, the work done on the ball as it falls is equal to the weight of the ball (a force) multiplied by the distance to the gro...

    Compare with heat. Work is the energy required to move an object against an opposing force. Work is usually expressed as a force times a displacement. Dropping a stone from a window involves no work, because there is no force opposing the motion (unless you consider air friction...). Pushing against a stone wall involves no work, unless the stone w...
