A truck carrying a 65.4 kg crate accelerates from rest to 53.9 km/h on a flat horizontal surface in 15.2 seconds. The crate does not slip in the truck bed. The acceleration was not constant. How much work was done on the crate by the truck?

  1. K = 1/2 * m * v^2

    Convert km/h to m/s, and solve for K
