#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

the change in KE will equal the work done **assuming** as seems OK to do here, that all work is converted into the object's motion, ie there are no losses to friction etc,

on that basis we can say that Work = Force X Distance

and also that Work =

or in maths form, bearing in mind we are working in only 1 dimension, that:

so here we have
