Ke = .5mv^2 so the ke is .5(26)(8.4^2)= 917.28

Can you calculate

Kinetic Energy = (1/2) M V^2 ?

The answer will be in Joules if you use the right units for M and V.

A microwave oven has a power requirement of 1235 W. A frozen dinner requires 6.0 min to heat on full power.

(a) How much electrical energy (in kWh) is used?

1 kWh

(b) If the cost of electricity is 12 cents per kWh, how much does it cost to heat the dinner?

2¢
