An object of mass, m is moving with a constant velocity, v. How much work should be done on the object in order to bring the object to rest?



Mass of the object = m

Velocity of the object = v



Initial Kinetic Energy = ½ m v 2


Since the object finally comes to rest

Final Kinetic Energy = - 0



Work Done = Change in Kinetic Energy

      = ½ m v 2 - 0

      = ½ m v 2
