Kinetic Energy Calculation

A moving object generally said to have kinetic energy. Click here to know about the calculation of kinetic energy. The formula needed for the calculation of kinetic energy is explained here. Kinetic energy calculations are explained here with examples.

Kinetic Energy Calculation

All moving objects have kinetic energy. The kinetic energy an object has depends on its:

  • Mass
  • Speed

The equation for calculating kinetic energy:

KE = ½ mv^2


KE = ½ × m × v^2

  • KE = the kinetic energy in joules, J
  • m = the mass in kilograms, kg
  • v = the speed in metres per second, m/s
