=Kinetic Energy= ===Energy associated with moving objects.=== [image:http://i.imgur.com/s47UtVv.png?1] *The faster an object is travelling or the greater its mass, the more Kinetic energy it will have. *However the speed of an object has a much greater influence on its kinetic energy, an object travelling twice the speed actually has four times the energy. ==Calculating Kinetic Energy== [image:http://i.imgur.com/jbrLrqH.png] ===Altering the velocity of an object has a squared effect on its kinetic energy. For instance doubling the velocity will quadruple the kinetic energy. Tripling the velocity will give the object nine (three squared) times as much kinetic energy.=== ===[image:http://i.imgur.com/EnbheKF.png?1]=== The formula can be rearranged to work out velocity.
