Homework Help: Calculate Velocity From Kinecitcal energy

  1. Nov 21, 2005 #1
    I know 4 thing
    Velocity 10m/s KE = 60000
    Velocity 15m/s KE = 135000

    For the next velocity the KE raises antoher 105000

    and the new Velocity = ???? and KE = 240000

    How do I solv the new Velocity...

    Can you find the mass from either of the first two equations? If yes, will that help with your final answer?

    well K.E. = 1/2mv^2

    if you knew "m", the rest would be easy

    if the unit of energy is jule then
    20 m/s

    enjoy

    Help!

    Yeah I forgot....the mass is 1200kg please tell me how to do it not only show the answer .....

    Just plug that info into the K.E formula. You know the Kinetic energy and the mass, now find the velocity.
