Warmup: Potential Energy of an object is based on the object's ___________ and ___________
Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. It is the energy of an object in motion. Kinetic energy is related to the speed of an object. The faster an object moves, the more kinetic energy it has.
What is Kinetic Energy?
Kinetic Energy is the energy that an object has due to its movement. It is measured in joules (J) Conservation of Energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another.
Kinetic Energy is the energy of ...
Kinetic Energy is related to the ________ of an object
Kinetic energy can be converted into other forms of energy, such as sound, heat, and light. Kinetic energy can be transferred from one object to another when objects collide.
Did you know?
Kinetic Energy Formula: KE = 1/2 x mass x velocity squared KE = 1/2mv2
With your neighbor try this Kinetic Energy Example: An object has a mass of 25 g and is moving at 6 m/s. What is the Total Kinetic Energy of the object?
With a classmate, try this Kinetic Energy example: An object has KE of 125 J. It is moving at 5m/s. What is the mass of the object?
Draw a scene in which an object is showing kinetic energy. Be Creative. Must be drawn. No importing of pictures.
What is the difference between kinetic energy and potential energy?
