A ball of mass 0.70 kg moving with speed of 1.0 m/s hits a wall and bounces back with the same speed in the opposite direction. What is the change in the ball's kinetic energy?

  • physics -

    The speed doesn't change. What does that tell you?

    If you don't know, review the definition of kinetic energy:

    (1/2) M V^2

    Even if the velocity changes sign, V^2 does not change sign.

    The mass M doesn't change, either.
