If a 50 kg object initially at rest is displaced 25 m by a constant net force of 600 N in the direction of motion of the object, then use the Work-Energy Theorem to find the final speed of the object.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Work done is equal to change in kinetic energy of the body .


Work done = (Force)*(displacem...
