Problem: Calculate the kinetic energy, in joules of a 1260-kg automobile moving at 18.0 m/s.

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the kinetic energy of a moving automobile.


To calculate for Kinetic Energy (K.E.), we’re going to use the following equation:

K.E.=12mv2

Ekinetic energy = J
m = mass, in kg
v = velocity of the e- = m/s
