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

A Student, starting from rest, does 2750 J of work to propel himself on a scooter across level ground. The combined mass of the scooter and the student is 68.0 kg. Assuming no friction, find...

a) How fast is he travelling?

b) What is his kinetic energy?

c) If he then coasts up a hill, to what height does he rise before stopping?

2. Relevant equations

Ek=1/2mv^2 ???

3. The attempt at a solution

Not even sure where to start on this given only 3 completely different variables. We can figure out c) if we are given some sort of start on a) and possibly b).

Thanks in advance
