How much work would it take to horizontally accelerate an object with a mass of #8 kg# to #3 m/s# on a surface with a kinetic friction coefficient of #6 #? Physics Work and Energy Work 1 Answer Narad T. Dec 17, 2017 Answer: The work is #=36J# Explanation: The mass of the object is #m=8kg# The velocity of the object is #v=3ms^-1# The kinetic energy of the object is #E=1/2mv^2=1/2*8*3^2=36J# The work done is equal to the kinetic energy Therefore, The work is #=36J# Related questions What is a force?
