## Kinetic Energy Calculator

Kinetic energy calculator is used to calculate the kinetic energy, velocity, or mass of the object. This KE calculator takes the values of two objects to find the value of 3rd one.

## What is Kinetic Energy?

Kinetic energy is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity.

The energy possessed by a body because of its motion, is equal to one-half the mass of the body times the square of its speed. i.e., K =1/2*m*v2. Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by a system or object as a result of its motion.

The kinetic energy of objects with mass is dependent upon the velocity and mass of the object, while the energy of waves depends on their velocity, frequency, and amplitude, as well as the density of the medium if there is one (as with ocean waves).

## Kinetic Energy Formula

The formula for kinetic energy is:

K = 1/2 * m * v2

Where

• k represents the kinetic energy
• m represents the mass of the object
• v represents the velocity of the object

## How to Calculate Kinetic Energy?

Example:

Calculate the Kinetic Energy K for the given mass of 23 kg and 23 meters/second.

Solution:

K = 1/2 * m * v2

K = 1/2 * 23 * 232

K = 6083.5 joule
