We can calculate the kinetic energy of any moving object with a very simple formula: kinetic energy = 1/2 mv^2 ,where m is the object's mass and v is its velocity or speed. Table Energy Comparisons shows that metabolizing a candy bar releases about 10^6 joules. A- How fast ...

A parachutist with mass 79.7 kg jumps from an airplane traveling at a speed vi= 112 km/hr at a height H = 2570 m. He lands with a speed of vf = 5.21 m/s. What is the change in mechanical energy (J) of the earth- parachutist system from just after the jump to just before ...

Equate the increase in potential energy at the higher elevation, M g H, to the decrease in kinetic energy. Make sure you include the kinetic energy of rotation, which is (1/2) I w^2. For a sphere of radius R, V = R w and I =(2/5) I R^2 Therefore KE(rotational) = (1/2)(2/5)M R^...
