Without energy we can't do work cuz we can't apply ne force on an object. Gravity, itself a force, when, say, pulls a ball down to the gorund it actually does work. Now for tht force, where does it get the energy from or what type of energy does it have? If u have a book ...

A newly planted tree is supported against the wind by a rope tied to a stake in the ground, as shown in the figure below. The force of the wind, though distributed over the tree, is equivalent to a single force F, as shown in the figure. Find the tension in the rope. Assume ...
