Visualize:Solve:(a)The work-kinetic energy theorem is 2210netwind11KmvmvWWΔ=−==There is no kinetic friction along her direction of motion. Static friction acts to prevent her skates from slipping sideways on the ice, but this force is perpendicular to the motion and does not contribute to a change in thermal energy.
