**[SOLVED] Kinetic Energy Question**

## Homework Statement

A 7.0 kg bowling ball moves at 2.35 m/s. How fast must a 2.40 g Ping-Pong ball move so that the two balls have the same kinetic energy?

m1= 7.0kg

v1= 2.35m/s

m2= .0024kg

v2=?

## Homework Equations

I know that:

KE= 1/2mv^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I set my equation like so:

KE1=KE2

and I reduced it to this:

m1v1=m2v2

I plugged in the values and solved for v2:

(7.0kg)(2.35m/s)=v2 (.0024kg)

v2= 6854.17

I put this answer in and it tells me...

wrong check mark

Your answer differs from the correct answer by orders of magnitude. m/s

What am I doing wrong? Please point me in the right direction.
