Work and Energy: 


The concept of work is described, when a force acting on an object causes displacement in any direction. The main components for the work to be defined are force and displacement.It is governed by Newton's law of motion, which serves as a model for analyzing motion of any body in terms of work done. Whereas, Energy is the ability to do work. In classical Mechanics, It is quantified by the potential and kinetic energy associated with the body at rest or in motion.
