A 30 kg kid on rollerskates is moving 1 m/s. His brother pushes him with a force of 5 N. What will be his kinetic energy after his brother pushes him 4.0 m? (35 J)

- PHYSICS - formula? -
**Steve**, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 2:44pmWhat acceleration does the pushing impart?

F=ma

5=30a

a = 1/6

How long does it take to go 4m, starting at 1m/s?

s = Vo t + 1/2 at^2

4 = t + 1/2 * 1/6 t^2

t^2 + 12t - 48 = 0

t = 4

What's the speed after 4 seconds?

v = Vo+at

= 1 + 1/6 * 4

= 5/3

What's the KE then?

KE = 1/2 mv^2

= 1/2 (30)(5/3)^2

= 15*25/9

= 125/3

Hmmm. better check my math.
