Here is the queston.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A student in a physics lab pushed a 0.100 kg cart on an air track over a distance of 10.0 cm, doing 0.230 J of work. Calculate the acceleration of the cart.

The textbook doesnt show how to approach this problem. It is suppose to be bonus or somthing.

These are my thoughts

I am assuming there is no friction since the cart was on a air track

I converted everything to their proper units.

mass=0.100kg

w=0.0230 J

d =10.0 cm = 0.1m

I know accleration is change of velocity/time

I need a hint at least to figure out how to solve this.

Thanks
