Need to calculate work from mass and two velocities

  1. Jun 10, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate how much work is done when a 1150 kg car accelerates from 2 m/s to 6m/s

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have no idea. It seems like insufficient information to me. Please help! I am in great need as my exam is drawing near!

    Thanks!

    Work done=change in KE=0.5*1150(6^2-3^2)
