A 0.60 - kg particle has a speed of 2.0 m/s at point A and a
kinetic energy of 7.5 J at point B. What is (a) its kinetic energy
at A? (b) Its speed at point B ? (c) The total work done on the
particle as it moves from A to B ?


Expert Answer

Step 1

(a) Write the expression for kinetic energy at point A
