# Relationship between Energy and Work Done

During a conversing of energy,

Amount of Work Done = Amount of Energy Converted

Example:
A trolley of 5 kg mass moving against friction of 5 N. Its velocity at A is 4ms-1 and it stops at B after 4 seconds. What is the work done to overcome the friction?

$\begin{array}{l}{\rm{Work Done}} \\{\rm{ = Kinetic Energy Loss}} \\= \frac{1}{2}mv_1^2 - \frac{1}{2}mv_2^2 \\{\rm{ = }}\frac{{\rm{1}}}{{\rm{2}}}(5)(4)^2 - \frac{1}{2}(5)(0)^2 \\= 40J \\\end{array}$
