# A block of mass 5 Kg is lying on a frictionless table. A force of 20 N is applied on it for 10 seconds. Calculate its kinetic energy.

Given,

Mass of body = 5 kg

Force F = 20 N

Time t = 10 seconds

To find: kinetic energy??

Initial velocity u = 0

Let final velocity be v

We know,

So, acceleration = 4 ms-2

We also know that,

Substituting value of acceleration and u in this formula:

v = 10 s × 4 ms-2

v = 40 ms-1

Kinetic energy = m v2

Substituting value of v in the equation

Kinetic energy =

= 4000 J

= 4 KJ
