Let's number the sets of oranges as follows:
K1 = (1/2)(2m)(1/2v)2 = (1/4)mv2
The amount of kinetic energy an object has depends on its mass and its speed.
Rank the following sets of oranges and cantaloupes from least kinetic energy to greatest kinetic energy. If two sets have the same amount of kinetic energy, place one on top of the other.
