Textbook Problem

Choose the best answer. A car traveling at constant speed has a net work of zero done on it. (a) True (b) False (c) The answer depends on the motion.

To determine
Whether the net work done on the car at a constant speed is zero or not.

Explanation

According to the work-energy theorem, the network done on an object is equal to the change in kinetic energy of the object.

The car is moving with a constant speed. So, the change in kinetic energy of the car is zero. Hence, the net work done on the car at constant speed is zero...
