(a) Find the net work done on the car.

(b) Find the magnitude and direction of the force that does this work. (Assume this force is constant.)

**bobpursley**, Monday, October 10, 2011 at 9:54ama) net work equals the change in KE.

or, Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad solve for a

then work= force*distance= mass*a*distance.

b) force= ma

**Kellie**, Monday, October 10, 2011 at 12:19pmI worked out the first equation for part a and found the acceleration to be -0.2304. When doing the second equation, I found work to be -8478.72 J. Can work be negative? I feel like I haven't worked this out correctly.
