Now that it's getting close to Thanksgiving, we're running a contest to hear advice you've received that you're most thankful for! This can be any type of advice and the advice with the most reactions will win!
Yes because remember, ANY type of work moves an object of some mass across a distance D by means of a force F. This is the definition of work. Work=force*displacement*costheta, with theta being the angle between force and displacement. Any type of work would cause displacement. If not, then there's no work!
Whenever I think of PV work, I think of a gas in a container with a piston or something, and compression and/or expansion of that gas which may involve a change in volume. The volume of the system in non-PV work would remain constant. When I think of non-PV work, I think of a box sliding down an inclined plane, where the system is the box and the surroundings are everything else. The entire object would be displaced in non-PV work.
