Step 1

Let the mass of the particle be denoted as m

Kinetic energy at point A and B be denoted as (K.E)A  and (K.E)B

The speed of the particle at point A and B be denoted as vA and vB .

The kinetic energy of a particle at point is expressed as,

Step 2

For calculating the kinetic energy at the point A, (K.E)A  ,

Substitute 0.400 kg for m, 1.50 m/s for vA and solve for (K.E)A   as,

Step 3

b)

For calculating the speed of the particle at the point B, use the expression for the kinetic energy (K.E)B  at the point B.

Substitute 7.60 J for (K.E...
