A 2000 kg car is moving with a velocity of 50 km/hr. What is its kinetic energy? If the car reduces its speed by half, by what factor is the kinetic energy changed?

ke= 1/2 M V^2
I will be happy to critique your thinking.

ke=1/2*2000kg*50
ke=50000

No. first, you have to have velocity in m/s. Convert km/hr.
Second, thequatioon says square velocity.
