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?
