A car with a mass of 1308 kg slows down from 58 km/h to 24km/hr. Calculate the change in its kinetic energy in kJ (NOT J)


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given values

mass of the car is =1308kg

it is slows down from 58km/h to 24km/h

So we have to calculate the change in kinetic energy in kJ

Step 2

Then the formula for kinetic energy=

Step 3

Here the condition is mass is fixed for only car so the change in speed is t...
