## How do you find height with kinetic energy and mass?

= mgh, where m is the mass in kilograms, g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m / s2 at the surface of the earth) and h is the height in meters. Notice that gravitational potential energy has the same units as kinetic energy, kg m2 / s2.

**How do you find velocity with mass and kinetic energy?**

In classical mechanics, kinetic energy (KE) is equal to half of an object’s mass (1/2*m) multiplied by the velocity squared. For example, if a an object with a mass of 10 kg (m = 10 kg) is moving at a velocity of 5 meters per second (v = 5 m/s), the kinetic energy is equal to 125 Joules, or (1/2 * 10 kg) * 5 m/s2.

### What is the kinetic energy of 14 J and a mass of 17 kg How fast is the object moving?

v = 1.28 m/s.

**How do you find height with kinetic energy?**

For the 50-kg sledder (includes the sled’s mass) moving at 8.0 m/s, the kinetic energy is 1600 Joules. The amount of potential energy is dependent upon mass and height and is found using the equation PE=m*g*h where g is the acceleration of gravity (approximated here to be 10 m/s/s).

## How do you calculate mass and velocity?

The Momentum Calculator uses the formula p=mv, or momentum (p) is equal to mass (m) times velocity (v). The calculator can use any two of the values to calculate the third.

**What is velocity kinetic energy?**

Kinetic energy depends on the velocity of the object squared. This means that when the velocity of an object doubles, its kinetic energy quadruples. So a tennis ball thrown to the right with a velocity of 5 m/s, has the exact same kinetic energy as a tennis ball thrown down with a velocity of 5 m/s.

### What is the kinetic energy formula?

Kinetic energy is directly proportional to the mass of the object and to the square of its velocity: K.E. = 1/2 m v2. If the mass has units of kilograms and the velocity of meters per second, the kinetic energy has units of kilograms-meters squared per second squared.
