Hi mates.

I was doing a practice exam and I came across an interesting question.
Calculate the work done accelerating a proton to a speed of [tex]6.00*10^7 ms^-1[/tex] from rest.

Proton mass [tex]=[/tex] [tex]1.67*10^-27[/tex]

How would I go about solving it?

It will just be the kinetic energy of the proton when it has that speed (since it started from rest).
