The kinectic energy E, of a toy car is directly proportional to the square of its velocity v. The difference in the kinectic energy of the toy car when it is travelling at 15cm/s and 20cm/s in 10 J. Find the kinectic energy of the toy car when it is travelling at 12cm/s thanks :)

  • math - ,

    Kinetic energy at velocity v
    Ek(v)=Kv²
    Since
    Ek(20)-Ek(15)=10 j = K(20²-15²)=175K
    we solve for K to get
    K=10/175

    Ek(12)=(10/175)*12² j
    =8.2 j.
