Work problem 32

A child weighing 40 kg slides down the slide. At the top of the slide, the child has a height of 1.9 m, and at the bottom of the slide, his height is 30 cm. During the descent on the slide, the frictional force does 180 J of work. Calculate the change in the child's kinetic energy during the descent down the slide.
