1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1-Calculate the energy (1/2 mv^2) for each of the following: a) a nova outburst that accelerate a mass of 1E-5 M_sun to a velocity of 1000 km/s 2. Relevant equations 1/2 mv^2 3. The attempt at a solution Now, heres what Im unsure of. Do I just take the kinetic energy, or, do I have to do some strange integral? I'm still not very comfortable with integration and am unsure of when to use it.
