KINETIC ENERGY
Kinetic energy is the energy of mass in motion. The kinetic energy of an object is the energy it has
because of its motion.

Kinetic energy (E) of an object in motion, is E = mv Where m is it's mass and v is the velocity at
which it is mov

F = ma
F is force, m is mass and a is acceleration. The math behind this is quite simple. If you double
the force, you double the acceleration, but if you double the mass, you cut the acceleration in
half. When a constant force acts on a massive body, it
