**drwls**, Thursday, April 23, 2009 at 1:44amA) The work done is the scalar product of the F and d vectors.

B) The cosine of the angle between the two vectors is the ratio of the scalar product (obtained in part (A)) to the product of the magnitudes os the F and d vectors.

C) I do not understand why the displacement is not in the direction of the force, since it starts out motionless and there is no friction
