(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

W= Fdcosθ

3. The attempt at a solution

I first found the acceleration:

t= d/v

t= 37m/28m/s = 1.32s

a = v/t

a = 28m/s / 1.32s

a= 21.21 m/ss

Second, the force:

F_{club}- F_{g}sinθ = ma

F_{club}= a +gsinθ

F_{club}= 21.21m/ss + 9.8m/ss sin84

F_{club}= 30.96N

Then I plugged in:

W=(30.96N)(37m)cos84

W=119.75J

I'm pretty sure this is correct. only thing I'm worried about really is the acceleration.
