Work done = Potential energy acquired by the body = m x g x h

where g is acceleration due to gravity

**Solution 2**

SI unit of work is Joule (J).

**Solution 3**

Work is a scalar quantity.

Work, as a physical quantity, requires only magnitude to be represented. Hence, it is scalar quantity.

**Solution 4**

When a force of 1 newton moves a body through a distance of 1 metre in its own direction, then the work done is known as 1 joule.

**Solution 5**

**Solution 8**

The work done against gravity is zero when a body is moved horizontally along a frictionless surface because force of gravity acts perpendicular to the direction of motion.

a) Law of conservation of energy states that whenever energy changes from one form to another form, the total amount of energy remains constant. Energy can

never be created nor destroyed, it transforms from one form to another. For example, when electrical energy is converted into light energy in an electric

bulb, then some energy is wasted as heat during conversion but the total energy remains the same.

b) Initially the pendulum is at rest. The bob is pulled to one side to position B to give it potential energy due to higher position of B and then released, the bob

starts swinging

i. When the bob is at position B, it has potential energy but no kinetic energy

ii. As the bob starts moving down from position B to A, its potential energy starts decreasing and kinetic energy starts increasing

iii. When the bob is at position A, it has maximum kinetic energy and zero potential energy

iv. As the bob starts moving down from position A to C, its kinetic energy starts decreasing and potential energy starts increasing

v. On reaching the extreme position C, the bob stops for a very small instant of time and bob maximum potential energy and zero kinetic energy.

Therefore at extreme positions B and C bob has only potential energy and at A it has only kinetic energy and at other intermediate positions bob has both kinetic

and potential energy. Thus the total energy of the pendulum is same for any instant of time (conserved)
