# How is kinetic energy?

**Sommaire de notre article**

### How is kinetic energy?

L’**kinetic energy** is defined as the**energy** possessed by a body due to its motion. For an object to move, work must be done on an object: a force must be exerted on this object which will allow it to move.

### How is kinetic energy transformed?

law of conservation**energy** During the movement, the**kinetic energy** can **transform** in **energy** potential and vice versa without their sum changing (example: oscillating pendulum, without friction).

### How to calculate kinetic energy?

To calculate kinetic energy, the following formula is used: EC = 0.5 x mv 2. In this formula: EC, i.e. Kinetic energy, is in joules (J), the international unit of the kinetic energy ; (v) is the speed of the object in m/s.

### What is the difference between mass and kinetic energy?

EC, i.e. Kinetic Energy, is in joules (J), the international unit of kinetic energy; (m) is the mass, i.e. the quantity of matter it contains (in kg);

### What is the kinetic energy of a moving object?

A moving object has kinetic energy. What does this energy depend on? Can we calculate it? 1. What is kinetic energy? It can deform another body.

### What is the value of kinetic energy?

1 Ec is the value of the kinetic energy which is expressed in joules (J); 2 m is the mass of the body which is expressed in kilograms (kg); 3 v is the speed of the body which is expressed in meters per second (m/s).
