A 6.10 kg block is pushed 9.30 m up a smooth 38.0 inclined plane by a horizontal force of 76.0 N . If the initial speed of the block is 3.30 m/s up the plane, calculate the:
(a) initial kinetic energy of the block
(b) work done by the 76.0 N force
(c) work done by gravity
(d) work done by the normal force
(e) final kinetic energy of the block
