# How to Calculate Work Done on an Accelerating Car

## What is the formula to calculate the work done on an accelerating car?

Given data: a 1.9e3 kg car accelerates uniformly from rest to 11m/s in 2.35s.

## Formula to Calculate Work Done:

The work done on an accelerating car can be calculated using the work-energy theorem, which states that work done is equal to the change in kinetic energy of the object.

When a car accelerates from rest to a certain velocity, the work done on the car can be calculated by finding the change in kinetic energy. The formula to calculate the work done is:

**Work Done = Change in Kinetic Energy**

Where the change in kinetic energy is calculated as the difference between the final kinetic energy and the initial kinetic energy of the object.

For the given data of a 1.9e3 kg car accelerating from rest to 11m/s in 2.35s, we can use the formula to determine the work done on the car during this time interval.
