Question: How fast is the dog moving when its kinetic energy has been reduced by half?

Question: By what fraction has its kinetic energy been reduced when its speed has been reduced by half?

**drwls**, Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 2:24amUse the fact that

kinetic energy = (1/2)MV^2.

For half the kinetic energy, the V^2 term must be reduced from 400 to 200, in this case.

That means V = 14.14 m/s

If you reduce speed by half, you have 1/4 the kinetic energy
