Supplementary Questions 1. Mary runs home form her friend’s house at a speed of 4.9m/s. She weighs 48kg. Determine the kinetic energy she expends. 2. If the speed of a 1.0kg kitten is, what is its kinetic energy? 3. A 60.0kg student is running at a constant speed of 3.50m/s. Find the kinetic energy of the student. 4. If the kinetic energy of a 3.00kg ball is 2.00x10 3 J, what is the speed of the ball? 5. If 5.5x10 6 J of energy were produced over 60s by a 1.5x10 6 kg train, what is the distance the train travelled in 60s? 6. A 40kg mass of iron sitting on a barge is ready to fall 5.0m into the ocean. What is the energy that would be released if it fell? 7. A large boulder weighting 500kg is sitting on a ledge 10.0m above the ground. What is its potential energy?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
