# Certain force acting on a 20 kg mass changes its velocity from 5 m s-1 to 2 m s-1. Calculate the work done by the force.

When the Velocity, v = 5 m/s

Mass, m = 20 kg

Then,

K.E. = mv2

= × 20 × (5) 2

= × 20 × 25

= 250 J

When the Velocity, v = 2 m/s

Mass, m = 20 kg

K.E. = mv2

= × 20 × (2) 2

= × 20 × 4

= 40 J

We know that,

Work done by force = Change in kinetic energy

= 250 - 40

= 210 J
