Example Question #1 : Kinetic Energy
A ball that has a mass of 2kg is launched upward at a velocity of . What is the initial kinetic energy of the ball?
Assume the ball is traveling in a vacuum.
Kinetic energy (measured in Joules) can be solved using the equation:
We are given both the mass of the projectile (2kg) and its velocity (). Using these values, we can solve the equation.
