 P: 25 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Calculate how much work is done when a 1150 kg car accelerates from 2 m/s to 6m/s 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I have no idea. It seems like insufficient information to me. Please help! I am in great need as my exam is drawing near! Thanks!

Work done=change in KE=0.5*1150(6^2-3^2)
