Full Proof of the Work-Energy Theorem Though a calculus based proof of the Work-Energy theorem is not completely necessary for the comprehension of material, it allows us to both work with calculus in a physics context, and to gain a greater understanding of exactly how the Work-Energy Theorem works.

Unformatted text preview: Using that equation, the equation we derived for work done by a variable force, we can manipulate it to yield the work-energy theorem. First we must manipulate our expression for the force acting on a given object: F net = ma = m = m = mv...
