Derivation of the Work-Energy Theorem W net = F net (x f - x o ) Using Newton's Second Law we can substitute for F: W net = ma(x f - x o ) Given uniform acceleration, v f 2 - v I 2 = 2a(x f - x o ) . Substituting for a(x f - x o ) into our work equation, we find that: W net = mv f 2 - mv o 2

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
