(f) The force F is again opposite to the direction of motion (so the angle φ is again 180°) so that Eq. 7 7 leads to W = − F Δx = −5.8 × 104 J. The fact that this agrees with the result of part (c) provides insight into the concept of work. 7P16. The change in kinetic energy can be written as 1

mΔ x (8.0 kg)(5.0 m) The negative sign indicates that the mass is decelerating. From the figure, we also see that when x = 5 m the kinetic energy becomes zero, implying that the mass comes to rest momentarily. Thus, 2
v0 = v 2 − 2aΔ x = 0 − 2(− 0.75 m/s 2 )(5.0 m) = 7.5 m 2 /s 2 , or v0 = 2.7 m/s . The speed of the object when x = −3.0 m is 2
v = v0 + 2aΔ x = 7.5 m2 /s 2 + 2(− 0.75 m/s 2 )( −3.0 m) = 12 m/s = 3.5 m/s . 7P22....
