integral work equation

Postby Alyssa Bryan 3F » Sun Feb 03, 2019 12:11 am

Will we need to know how to use the work equation with the integral on a test or was Dr. Lavelle just explaining the background and giving more information for the other equations?

I don't know if there will be specific questions asking us to derive the work equation and explain it using the integral, but I think it's a good idea that you understand how it relates to the work equation because then you'll probably be more comfortable using the work equation to solve problems.

There are some problems in the text book where the integral equation is needed (for example problem 8.11 in the sixth edition) so I would know how to solve for those.
