The graph between the resistive force F acting on a body and the distance covered by the body is shown in the figure. The mass of the body is 25 kg and initial velocity is 2 m/s. When the distance covered by the body is 4m, its kinetic energy would be

(1) 50 J

(2) 40 J

(3) 20 J

(4) 10 J

Work done by variable force

(4) Initial K.E. of the body = 12mv2=12×25×4=50  J

Work done against resistive force

= Area between F-x graph

= 12×4×20=40J

Final K.E. = Initial K.E. – Work done against resistive force 

= 50 – 40 = 10 J
