Kinetic Energy Tutorial
 Kinetic Energy:      Kinetic Energy is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its current velocity. Kinetic Energy Formula : Kinetic Energy: Ek = ½ mv2 Mass: m = Ek / ½ v2 Velocity: where, Ek = Kinetic Energy, M = Mass of object, V = Velocity or Speed of object, Kinetic Energy Example: Case 1: Determine the Kinetic energy of a 500kg roller coaster train which moves at a speed of 20 m/s.  M = 500 kg, V = 20 m/s   Step 1: Substitute the values in the below kinectic energy formula:             Kinetic Energy: Ek = ½ mv2             = ½ x 500 x 202             = 0.5 x 500 x 400             Kinetic Energy: Ek = 100000 Joules or 1 x 105 Joules This example will guide you to calculate the kinetic energy manually. Case 2: What is the speed of a 55 kg woman running with a kinetic energy of 412.7 J?  Ek = 412.7, M = 55 kg   Step 1: Substitute the values in the below Velocity formula: This example will guide you to calculate the velocity manually.
