A steroid is moving along a straight line. A force acts along the displacement of the asteroid and slows it down. The asteroid has a mass of 4.5e4kg and the force causes the speed to change from 7100 to 5500m/s. (A) What is the work done by the force? (B) If the asteroid slows down over a distance of 1.8e6m determine the magnitude of the force.
