Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but there is no displacementas there is too much mass then will there have been work done?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it depends on where your definition of "work" is focused.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no movement, no work done... \[\int\limits_{a}^{a} F*dx = 0 \] ...no matter what F is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The phrase "i did work" still unclear. Only force do work. If you refer word ""I" to the "force you used to push the wall", then work is zero. But there's another force when you push the wall that does work. That's why you feel tired even if the wall isn't moving :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0work done = force * displacement so if object is not moving then you have done no work done

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no displacement in the direction of force, no work done. even if you died pushing the object hard. ^_^ No displacement along the direction of force means no work done.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0w=\[\int\limits_{0}^{d}\]f.ds...hence if displacement is zero,no work is said to be done in physics...
