When the 210-Kg Genesis Mission Capsule Crashed with a speed of 311 Km/h, it buried itself 81.0 cm deep in the desert floor.

Assuming constant acceleration during the crash, at what average rate did the capsule do work on the desert?

Given: m = 210 kg Find W =?

vo = 311 km /h = 86.4 m/s

x = 81.0 cm = 0.81 m

I know the following equation: W = F*d = m * a *d

*Note: I am stuck on this Solving this type of Physics Problem, could somebody please provide me some insight on how to calculate this problem. I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.
