So let me try to explain a little bit. Lets say I have a robot on wheels. I want this robot to push a block. Lets say the force to produce in order to move that block is 100N.
How much energy will I need in order to begin pushing this block?
My dilemma is, Nothing is moving, therefore no work is being produced therefore no energy... But when I push something myself, I'm obviously using energy. But how do I produce force with energy if nothing moves.
