While it is moving it is acted on by a constant force of < 21 , 0, 0 > N. How much work is done on the object by this force? W = -63-63 J As a result, the kinetic energy of the object decreases decreases A different object moves from location < -20 , 0, 0 > m to location < -17 , 0, 0 > m, as shown above. While it is moving it is acted on by a constant force of < 21 , 0, 0 > N. How much work is done on the second object by this force? W = 63 63 J As a result, the kinetic energy of the object increases increases 4/25/08 10:29 AM Ch5 HW2 S2008 Page 2 of 5 http://www.webassign.net/v4cgikseiloff3@gatech/student.pl?c=20080425142249kseiloff3@gatech1286165155 Solution or Explanation If the work done on a particle is negative, the kinetic energy of the particle decreases; if the work done is positive, the kinetic energy of the...
