The energy possessed by a body due to its motion is called kinetic energy.

Kinetic Energy Formula is given by

Where,

**m **= mass of the body,

**v **is the velocity with which body is moving.

The Kinetic energy is expressed in Kgm^{2}/s^{2}.

Kinetic energy formula is used to calculate the mass, velocity or Kinetic energy of the body if any of the two quantities are given.

### Solved Examples

**Question 1: **A car is moving with the velocity of 10 m/s and is having mass of 250 Kg. Calculate its Kinetic energy?

** Solution: **

Given: Mass of the body m = 250 Kg,

Velocity v = 10 m/s,

Kinetic energy is given by K.E = $\frac{1}{2}$ mv^{2}

= $\frac{1}{2}$ $\times$ 250 Kg (10 m/s)^{2}

= 12500 Kgm^{2}/s^{2}.

**Question 2: **A man is carrying a trolley of mass 6 Kg and having Kinetic energy of 40 J. Calculate its Velocity with which he is running?

** Solution: **

Given: Mass m = 6 Kg,

Kinetic energy K.E = 60 J,

Velocity v = $\sqrt{\frac{2 K.E}{m}}$

= $\sqrt{\frac{2 \times 40 J}{6 Kg}}$

= $\sqrt{13.33}$

= 3.65 m/s.

The man is running with the velocity of 3.65 m/s.

Given: Mass of the body m = 250 Kg,

Velocity v = 10 m/s,

Kinetic energy is given by K.E = $\frac{1}{2}$ mv

= $\frac{1}{2}$ $\times$ 250 Kg (10 m/s)

= 12500 Kgm

Given: Mass m = 6 Kg,

Kinetic energy K.E = 60 J,

Velocity v = $\sqrt{\frac{2 K.E}{m}}$

= $\sqrt{\frac{2 \times 40 J}{6 Kg}}$

= $\sqrt{13.33}$

= 3.65 m/s.

The man is running with the velocity of 3.65 m/s.
