In position force graphs, work done is calculated from the area under the curve.
We'll sum up the area under the three shapes from x = 0.20 m to x = 0.55 m.
The force shown in the figure (Figure 1) moves an object from x = 0 to x = 0.75 m.
How much work is done by the force if the object moves from x = 0.20m to x = 0.55m?
