# How does force relate to kinetic energy?

The force will determine how much energy the body will acquire.

The force needed to accelerate a body, according to Newton's second law of motion, is f= given by:

The body in motion will receive kinetic energy from

Force is directly related to kinetic energy through the work-energy principle, which states that the work done on an object by a force is equal to the change in kinetic energy of the object. In simpler terms, when a force is applied to an object and causes it to move, the object gains kinetic energy proportional to the magnitude of the force and the distance over which it is applied. Therefore, the greater the force exerted on an object, the more kinetic energy it will gain, assuming no other factors such as friction or air resistance are present.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- A bullet of mass 15g leaves the barrel of a rifle with a speed of 800 m/s. If the length of the barrel is 75 cm, what is the the average force that accelerates the bullet?
- An object with a mass of #2 kg# is on a surface with a kinetic friction coefficient of # 7 #. How much force is necessary to accelerate the object horizontally at #6 m/s^2#?
- An object with a mass of #6 kg# is pushed along a linear path with a kinetic friction coefficient of #u_k(x)= 1+3cotx #. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [(pi)/6, (3pi)/8], where x is in meters?
- An object with a mass of #14 kg# is on a plane with an incline of # - pi/3 #. If it takes #12 N# to start pushing the object down the plane and #11 N# to keep pushing it, what are the coefficients of static and kinetic friction?
- An object with a mass of #5 kg# is pushed along a linear path with a kinetic friction coefficient of #u_k(x)= xe^x+x #. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [1, 2], where x is in meters?
