How is kinetic energy measured?
To measure kinetic energy:
Let us suppose an object of mass m moving wtih velocity v
Kinetic Energy of that object= mv2/2
The term we use to describe this kind of measurement is "temperature". Note that temperature is not directly the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object (for one thing, temperature is measured in kelvins, kinetic energy is measured in joules). However, the two are related to each other.
