This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Since normal( Between block and wedge) is not a dissipative force hence net work done by it on the system is zero.

Now the lower wedge is getting velocity because of the normal force hence it is doing positive work on the wedge , since net work is zero it implies normal force does negative work on the block.

Ans) Negative

Another way to analyse the FBD of the block

The normal force is making an angle \theta with the positive y-axis and the block's displacement has two components one perpendicular to block and one along the -x axis. So work done in first component is zero and work done in second component is -Nxsin(\theta) ( The angle between normal and displacement(x) is 90+\theta)

It is clear work done is negative.

If by chance I would get a rank just under 100 I would be over the moon and you are talking about 1 Ha Ha Ha.

Yes You are Right Here..!! Kudos..!!

W=F.Swhen force is constant.As clearly seen from diagram,angle b/w force and displacement is 90.

Hence, work done is 0

@Akhil Bansal I am sorry but the angle between force and displacement here is not 90..!!

Can you see this ?
