You should be able to identify the correct ones from the following famous formulas:
## \vec F=m \vec a ##
## \vec F_{Lorentz}=q(\vec E+\vec v \times \vec B) ##
## W=\int_{P1}^{P2} \vec F \cdot \vec{ds} ##
## W=KE_2-KE_1 ##
## KE=\frac 1 2 m |\vec v|^2 ##

That's not how things work in this forum.
People who ask questions, should show at least a bit of effort.
Start thinking about it and try to find out exactly what it is that you don't understand clearly and ask it here. People will be happy to help.
