Therefore the work done in the second case is twice as much.

You'd best set yourself to re-evaluating where you stand.
In my physics book, and yes I do actually own one which I have read again and again in the relevant sections, work is always quoted as equal to force multiplied by distance.

W.D. = F x d

I have never heard of this equation W.D. = F x m x d and believe you have just made it up in a vain effort to win the argument.

Nice try but no.......

I suggest you read a physics book yourself carefully.

And yes you do score a FAIL.
