A meteorite is a solid composed of stone and/or metal material from outer space that
passes through the atmosphere and hits the earth’s surface. Find the kinetic energy of
a meteorite with mass 250 kg that hits the earth at 25 km/s.

Given:
m=250kg
v=2.5E4m/s <<< converted km/s to m/s

So the problem should be set up like this?
0.5*250*(2.5E4)^2=
