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

An object is acted on by the force shown below. What is the final position of the object if

its initial position is x = 0.40m and the work done on it is equal to

(a) 0.21 J

(b) (b) -0.19 J.

2. Relevant equations

W = F1x1 + F2(x2 - x1)

3. The attempt at a solution

a) W= F(x2-x1) = 0.8N* (x2- 0.40m)

but i DON'T get the answer correctly.
