A child applies a force F⃗ F→ parallel to the xx -axis to a 10.0-kgkg sled moving on the frozen surface of a small pond. As the child controls the speed of the sled, the xx -component of the force she applies varies with the xx -coordinate of the sled as shown in the figure

1Calculate the work done by the force F⃗ F→ when the sled moves from xx=0 to xx=8.0m.

2Calculate the work done by the force F⃗ F→ when the sled moves from xx=8.0mm to xx =12.0mm.

3Calculate the work done by the force F⃗ F→ when the sled moves from xx=0 to xx =12.0mm.
