1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the Kineti energy of a 1g (0.001kg) meteor traveling at 30,000m/s? Express your answer in Joules. 2. Relevant equations KE=1/2MV^2 3. The attempt at a solution 1/2(.001kg)(30,000)^2 = 450000J Now since 30,000 is squared, would i have to multiply .001kg by 4, before i did all of this math?
