A 0.60-kg particle has a speed of 2.0 m/s at point A and a kinetic energy of 7.5 J at point B. What is (a) its kinetic energy at A? (b) Its speed at point B? (c) The total work done on the particle as it moves from A to B?

(a)

To determine
The kinetic energy of the particle at point A.

Explanation

Given Info:

The mass of the particle is 0.60kg .

The speed of particle at point A is 2.0m/s .

Formula to calculate the kinetic energy is,

KEA=12mvA2

• vA is the velocity of particle at point A
• m is the mass of particle

Substitute 0.60kg for m and 2

(b)

To determine
The speed of the particle at point B.

(c)

To determine
The total work done on the particle as it moves from the point A to B.
