Can some one help me out here, I have tried using several different methods but I still don't know what I am doing wrong.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question is:

A proton in a high energy accelerator moves w/a speed of 0.5c, use the work-energy theorem to find the work required to increase its speed to 0.7c.

I have tried /\K=.5m(vf^2-vi^2), what am I doing wrong????
