The kinetic energy of an object is the energy it possesses because of its motion. The kinetic energy of a point mass m is given by Index Energy concepts More detail on this development Energy as the capacity for doing work is a convertible currency. To give something kinetic energy you must do work on it. This development uses the concept of work as well as Newton's second law and the motion equations . It is a special case of the workenergy principle , a powerful general principle of nature. HyperPhysics ***** Mechanics R Nave Go Back More Detail on Kinetic Energy Concept Kinetic energy is energy of motion. The kinetic energy of an object is the energy it possesses because of its motion. The kinetic energy of a point mass m is given by Concepts involved in relating net work to change in kinetic energy:...
