    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What fundamental priniple of physics does the work-energy theorum relate?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    is it Newton's second law?

    Newton's Second Law sits at the base of the work energy theorem. Yes the theorem is a direct consequence rather a tool to simplify problems as energy is just a number you associate with the system.
