A rugby player of mass 82kg is running at 6.0m/s. How much energy will be needed to stop him?
---------------------------------------

  • physics -

    This is an energy problem. Because we are given mass and velocity we know to use the formula for kinetic energy.

    KE=1/2(mass)*(velocity)^2

    KE=1/2(82 kg)*(6.0 m/s)^2

    KE=1476 J
