Work transfers energy to a system through the forceful manipulation of its state. Do some work on yourself to master this fundamental mode of energy transfer.

A locomotive of mass \(m\) starts moving so that its velocity varies according to the law \(v=k \sqrt{s}\), where \(k\) is a constant and \(s\) is the distance covered. Find the total work performed by all the forces which are acting on the locomotive during the first \(t\) seconds, after the beginning of motion.

- If \( W=\large\frac { m{ k }^{ \alpha }{ t }^{ \beta } }{ \mu } \), find \(\alpha +\beta +\mu \).

Two forces \(\left(6\hat{i} + 2\hat{j} - 3\hat{k}\right) \si{\newton}\) and \(\left(5\hat{i} - 3\hat{j} + 7\hat{k}\right) \si{\newton}\) act on an object that moves on a frictionless surface and, in doing so, displace it from \(\left(2\hat{i} + 3\hat{j} - 5\hat{k}\right) \si{\metre}\) to \(\left(-3\hat{i} - 3\hat{j} + 4\hat{k}\right) \si{\metre}\).

Find the magnitude of the work done on the object, \(W\) in joules.
