# What is the kinetic energy of a 60 grain bullet traveling at 3000 feet per second?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 05/30/2009

60 grains = 0.003888 kg 3000 feet per second = 914.4 m/s Kinetic Energy = 0.5 x Mass x Velocity^2 KE = 0.5 x 0.003888 x 914.4^2 = 1625.43158784 Joules

### Which has the most kinetic energy a 1000 kg car traveling 30 ms or a car traveling 45 ms?

I suggest you calculate the kinetic energy for each case, then
compare. The formula for kinetic energy is (1/2) m v squared.
_______________________________________
For having the same mass for both velocities, the car moving
with velocity 45 meter per second will be having higher kinetic
energy as the kinetic energy is directly proportional to the square
of the velocity for equal mass.

### How much work will be done by a 30 gram bullet traveling at 200 meters per second?

Kinetic energy = (1/2) (mass) (speed)2
The kinetic energy of the bullet is (1/2) (0.03) (200)2 = 600
joules.
While it's in flight, it's not doing any work. (Except for
plowing through the air,
which we customarily ignore when we work Physics problems at
this level.)
When the bullet finally meets its mark, it'll come to rest
inside the target, and
its kinetic energy will be zero. Since energy is never created
or destroyed, we
want to know what happened to the 600 joules. The answer...

### What is The kinetic energy of a 25-gram bullet traveling at 500 ms?

Dear Wiki Questioner,
To calculate the kinetic energy of an object, we use the
following equation:
KE=(1/2) m v^2
Where KE is the object's kinetic energy in Joules
m is the object's mass in kilograms
and v is the object's velocity in meters per second
So for your question, we first convert the mass of the bullet
into kilograms so we can use it in our equation:
25g (1 kg/ 1000 g) = .025 kg
The mass of the bullet is .025 kilograms!
Now we plug...

###### Asked in Kinematics

### Which would have the greatest kinetic energy you mass 75 kg about to hit the ground after falling 80 meters or an average bullet mass 8 g traveling 1000 ms?

Kinetic energy is defined as Ek= ½ m v². First, a free fall
implies an acceleration of -9.81 m/s². If the initial height is 80
m, the final height is 0 m, the initial speed is 0 m/s, and the
acceleration is -9.81 m/s², then the "free fall" time is about
4.039 s. The final speed will therefore be -39.62 m/s. The kinetic
energy will be ½(75)(-39.62)² = 58,860 J. Second, 8 g is 0.008 kg.

### What is the kinetic energy of a 1000 kg car traveling at 5 miles per second?

WOW, 5 MILES PER SECOND. I guess that I would have to calculate
the miles per hour. To do this, we must multiply 5 miles per second
times 3600(the number of seconds in an hour). That is 18000 miles
per hour. I like to work in the SI system, so by converting this to
meters per second, we get 8.04672E3 meters per second. Kinetic
energy is defined as one half mvsquared. The Kinetic Energy is

Second example: The muzzle energy of a traveling 9mm bullet is
around 500 joules.
Third example: An object with mass of 5kg (11 lbs) and which is

second. Multiply miles per hour by a factor of 1.609 to get
kilometers per hour. Divide this answer by 3600 to get kilometers

### What has more kinetic energy a 0.0018-kg bullet traveling at 402 ms or a 6.8 107-kg ocean liner traveling at 10 ms 19 knots?

For an object of mass m (measured in kilograms, kg) travelling
at a speed v (measured in metres per second, m s-1), assuming that
v is well below the speed of light, the kinetic energy E (measured
in joules, J) is given by:
E = 1/2 m v2
So for the bullet, m = 0.0018 kg, and v = 402 m s-1:
E = 1/2 x 0.0018 kg x (402 m s-1)2
= 145.4436 J

Thermal conduction is the transfer of heat energy through direct

individual particles. The higher the kinetic energy, the more heat
energy it contains. In thermal conduction, the particle with the
higher kinetic energy loses some of that energy upon collision with
a particle with lower kinetic energy. The second particle's kinetic
energy is then increased, and upon collision with another particle
it transfers some of its energy to the next particle, and so...
