No.

The problem is you use the term "inertial displacement" without defining it adequately. You are arguing that Karlson need not expend any energy to cause the stone to move the first 9.8m during the 2nd second, but you ignore the fact that the stone is accelerating to a higher velocity during that first 9.8m, and accelerating it to that higher velocity requires energy.

It's important to understand that I say about only the 2nd second! Only.

"so long as" -- the answer is allways during the 2nd second.

I consider that in the most general sence:
Work is any activity that requires effort;
Energy is an ability (resource) to do Work.

It is important to understand that when any Work is being done, Energy (resource to do Work) is always being spent on this Work. Always.

So I will ask my question once again, --

Do you admit that Karlson’s Energy (any resources of Karlson) will not be spent on this Inertial Displacement of the stone (9.8m, during the 2nd second), since the stone moves this 9.8m displacement, during the 2nd second, also by inertia, as during the 1st second?

Any impulse that deals with the effects of inertia is taken care of when the object starts to move under the applied force. You don't need to keep adding it, otherwise you are "over-counting."

In both cases $\displaystyle W = F \cdot d = (ma) \cdot \left ( v_0 t + (1/2) at^2 \right )$

What part of these equations do you think is wrong?

-Dan

Addendum: And why are you so hot on t = 2 s? The effect you are trying to explain has to do with the time interval. Your effect would start taking place at just over 0.0000000000000000000000000000001 seconds, not for just t = 2 s.

Good.

"inertial displacement" is the displacement that the stone moves by inertia through (without spending any resources)
For example, the stone will move through a displacement of 9.8m during the 1st second only by inertia (i.e. without spending any resources). It is important to understand that no Energy (no resources) will be spent in this process.

"first 9.8m during the 2nd secon"
Perhaps here is a disunderstanding.
This 9.8m displacement is not the first one.
The stone does not move first the 9.8m displacement by inertia (during the 2nd second) and then 4.9m displacement (under the pushing of the gravitational Force).

The stone is being under the pushing of the gravitational Force during the whole 2nd second also and as the stone is being moved by inertia also during the whole 2nd second. These 2 movement happen simultaneously during the whole 2nd second.

I'm going to take a stab at a new direction. Are you aware that inertia is not a force, right? It is for this reason that W = Fd doesn't need to make any explicit reference to it.

"inertia is irrelevant when calculating work"

That part of displacment (9.8m of 14.7m) that the stone is moving by inertia through can not increase the Work. (But this happens exactly so, accoding to the "current" formula).
For example, the stone will move through a displacement of 9.8m during the 1st second only by inertia (i.e. without spending any resources). It is important to understand that no Energy (no resources) will be spent in this process.

It is very important to understand that in this “old” formula for Work and Energy,

W(E)=F*D (where, D=D1+D2)

in the calculation of Work and Energy, the Summary Displacement (D) was erroneously taken into account, in which 2 completely different displacements were summarized:
- the Non-Inertial Displacement (D1), which the object moves as a result of the Work (Pushing) of the gravitational Force; and
- the Inertial Displacement (D2), which the object moves as a result of motion by inertia.

We may not “give credit” to the gravitational Force for the Inertial Displacement (D2), in other words, Inertial Displacement (D2) must not increase the Work (W) of the Force (F).

But now, according to this “current” formula,

W(E)=F*D (where, D=D1+D2)

the Inertial Displacement (D2) erroneously increases the Work (W) of the Force (F) and, accordingly, erroneously increases the Energy (E) expended on this Work.

Thus, the using of Inertial Displacement (D2) in the calculation of the Work and the Energy (that is, the calculation of the Joule) is absolutely erroneous!

The answer is the v*t part (it is the D2) into the D (v*t+(1/2)at2) can not increase the Work.

Only the (1/2)at2 displacement is the result of Work of Force and can increase the Work of the Force.

But inside the D (in F*D) "sits" the inertial displacement.

It is very important to understand that in this “old” formula for Work and Energy,

W(E)=F*D (where, D=D1+D2)

You must have little face of the millions of physicists since Newton who know you're wrong. I explained to you why too. So instead of telling you again I'll now show you.

So sweet.

So you both (Pmb and topsquark) have one (such a pitiful) argument from you both.

Do not drag Newton into your pitiful stuff.

I have said in the main text that
"In my opinion, basic errors in science occurred because people have not fully understood all the three Newton’s discoveries: Newton’s 1st, 2nd and 3rd Laws."

And I explained it.

So what is your logical argument on my logical ones?

Also

"inertia is irrelevant when calculating work"
I would say that the inertial displacement must be irrelevant when calculating Work and Energy.

Because when the stone moves by inertia (the inertial displacement) -- no Energy, no resources are being spent in this process.

But you somehow do not understand it.
