# 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:

$\overline{){\mathbf{K}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{m}}{{\mathbf{v}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

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

Given:
