Question

Asked Oct 6, 2019

The only force acting on a 4.2 kg canister that is moving in an *xy* plane has a magnitude of 3.6 N. The canister initially has a velocity of 3.4 m/s in the positive *x* direction, and some time later has a velocity of 5.7 m/s in the positive *y* direction. How much work is done on the canister by the 3.6 N force during this time?

Step 1

According to the work-energy theorem, the change in the kinetic energ...
