Work is a measure of energy transfer when force is applied in a certain direction. It is measured in joules. Work is related to force and distance by the mathematical equation: work = force x distance.

One could understand this equation as 1 joule of work has occurred when 1 newton of force created a displacement of 1 meter. Force, in this equation, usually refers to the weight of the object given by mass x gravity. The equation for work also implies that a small displacement of a very heavy object would be the same work as a small, lighter object moved a long distance.
