Apply the work–kinetic energy theorem to solve problems. Distinguish between kinetic and potential energy. Classify different types of potential energy. Calculate the potential energy associated with an object’s position. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. Concept Check – Kinetic Energy By what factor does the kinetic energy of a car change when its speed is tripled? 1. no change at all 2. factor of 3 3. factor of 6 4. factor of 9 5. factor of 12 Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. Concept Check – Kinetic Energy By what factor does the kinetic energy of a car change when its speed is tripled? 1. no change at all 2. factor of 3 3. factor of 6 4. factor of 9 5. factor of 12 Since the kinetic energy is 1/2 1/2 mv mv 2 , if the speed increases by a speed increases by a factor of 3 factor of 3 , then the KE will increase by a factor of 9 KE will increase by a factor of 9 .

Concept Check – Kinetic Energy (2) Is it possible for the kinetic energy of an object to be negative? 1. yes 2. no Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. Concept Check – Kinetic Energy (2) Is it possible for the kinetic energy of an object to be negative? 1. yes 2. no The kinetic energy is kinetic energy is 1/2 mv 1/2 mv 2 . The mass mass and the velocity squared velocity squared will always be positive positive , so KE must always be positive KE must always be positive . Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. Concept Check – Kinetic Energy (3) Car #1 has twice the mass of car #2, but they both have the same kinetic energy. How do their speeds compare? 1. 2 v 1 = v 2 2. √ 2 v 1 = v 2 3. 4 v 1 = v 2 4. v 1 = v 2 5. 8 v 1 = v 2 Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.
