The kinetic energy of a particle of mass m is found by taking one-half of the product of the mass (M) and the square of the veocity (V). write an expression for the kinetic energy of a particle.

Am i correct in writing
KE=1/2mv^2

yes

can u help me study for my algebra test that i have tomorrow??
