An 85 kg football player traveling 4.7 m/s is stopped in 1.0 s by a tackler. What is the original kinetic energy of the player? (I tried using 1/2 m v^2 but that doesn't seem to be right. How do I manipulate the formula?) What average power is required to stop him?

  • physics -

    It is right, 1/2 m v^2 is the original KE.

    average power= energy/timestopping

  • physics -

    50 joules

  • physics -

    934 joules
