Kinetic Energy Formula

Kinetic energy is the energy that occurs when an object is in motion. It is defined as the work required to accelerate an object of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity. Kinetic Energy is denoted by Ek, and is calculated using the below kinetic energy formula. It is half of the product of the mass and velocity square. From the above given formula, you can easily calculate the values of mass and velocity alternatively interchanging the formula.

Kinetic Energy:

Ek = 1/2 (mv2)


m = Ek / 1/2 (v2)



m = Mass,
v = Velocity.
