6.65e10 is the answer but I keep getting 146576.64 or 1.46e5, Am I missing a conversion factor? Here is the math I used

(1/2)2337(11.2)^2= 146576.64

**DrBob222**, Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 1:06am1/2 m*v^2 is correct but you can't use mass in pounds. That must be converted to kg. The velocity must be entered in meters/s. The answer of 6.65E10 is correct.
