Kinetic energy

The formula for kinetic energy, Ek, could not be simpler.

Ek = (1/2)mv2, where m is mass (in kg) and v is velocity (in m s-1). If you prefer, you could write Ek = mv2/2.

or, 810j=1/2*20Kg*v2


or,v=sqrt of 81

so,v=9m s-1

When an object falls which energy changes to?

As the object falls, it PEG or potential gravitational energy becomes kinetic energy. Before falling, it has for example 10 joules of PEG and 0 joules of Kinetic energy. As it falls, the PEG decreases and the kinetic energy increases, until it hits the ground, when all the energy is dispersed as sound, heat, etc.

Suppose a falling object loses 7J of potential energy. How much kinetic energy will it gain?

From what I understand: PE - Potential Energy (mgh) KE - Kinetic Energy (1/2 mv2) If one dismisses the friction with air (conservation of energy), a loss of 7 joules for potential energy means a gain of 7 Joules in kinetic energy.
