Certain force acting on a 20 kg mass changes its velocity from 5 m s-1 to 2 m s-1.Calculate the work done by the force.

##### Solution :-

Given data:

Initial velocity u=5 ms–1

Mass of the body = 20kg

Final velocity v = 2 ms–1

The initial kinetic energy

Ei =$$( \frac{1}{2})$$ mu2 = $$( \frac{1}{2})$$ x 20 x (5 ms–1 ) 2 =250kgms-2

= 250Nm = 250J

Final kinetic energy Ef = $$( \frac{1}{2})$$ mv2 = $$( \frac{1}{2})$$ x 20 x (2 ms–1 ) 2 =40kgms-2 = 40 Nm =40J

Therefore,

Work done = Change in kinetic energy

Work done = Ef – Ei

Work done =40J – 250J

Work done = -210J
