Answer:

#=>Delta E = 133 " J"#

Explanation:

Kinetic energy is given as:

#E = 1/2 m v^2#

We can compute the change by subtracting the initial from the final energy.

#Delta E = 1/2mv_f^2 - 1/2mv_i^2#

#Delta E= 1/2m(v_f^2-v_i^2)#

#Delta E = 1/2 (2)((13)^2 - (6)^2)#

#Delta E = 169 - 36#

#=>Delta E = 133 " J"#
