A bicyclist rides 2.94 km due east, while the resistive force from the air has a magnitude of 7.47 N and points due west. The rider then turns around and rides 2.94 km due west, back to her starting point. The resistive force from the air on the return trip has a magnitude of 7.47 N and points due east. Find the work done by the resistive force during the round trip.

    work is a scalar quantity, therefore W = 7.47*2.94*2 = 43.9 kjoule

    Work is a scalar. So you do not consider direction.

    You calculate the work done on the way out then the work done on the way back.

    You already know that work = force * distance.

    And that work is either positive if the force gives energy to something else, or negative if it takes work away from something else..

    The work done BY the resistance is a) GIVING energy to the rider or b) TAKING energy from the rider?

    So is the answer positive or negative?
