Learning Goal: To understand the meaning and possible applications of the work-energy theorem.

In this problem, you will use your prior knowledge to derive one of the most important relationships in mechanics: the work-energy theorem. We will start with a special case: a particle of mass moving in the x direction at constant acceleration . During a certain interval of time, the particle accelerates from to , undergoing displacement given by .

Find the acceleration of the particle.
