1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ive got another question that I think I might have failed at. A dog weighing 250 kg jumps into an empty boat by the dock at a speed of 5m/s causing the boat to move away form the shore at 1.75m/s. Find the amount of kinetic energy dissipated. 2. Relevant equations KE=1/2*m*v^2 3. The attempt at a solution Before KE=1/2*m*v^2 KE=(.5)(250kg)(5.0m/s)^2 KE(1)=3125 and after KE=1/2*m*v^2 KE=(.5)(250)(1.75m/s)^2 KE(2)=382.813 KE1-KE2=2742.19 KE dissipated = 2742 So am I right?
