No, because the force and the displacement of the object are perpendicular
17. A child is riding merry-go-round. Does the centripetal force acting on a child do work on him?
a. Yes, since a force acts and the object moves, and work is force times distance.
b. Yes, since it takes energy to turn an object.
c. No, because the object has constant speed.
d. No, because the force and the displacement of the object are perpendicular.
