Math equation

  1. Oct 17, 2011 #1
    Can anyone tell me what is the best math equation for finding electron flow through mass? I want to determine the kinetic energy of a mass.

    I didn't understand that. Can you clarify this?

    I would like to measure kinetic energy of a mass. Can you tell me an equation to use please?

    [itex]\frac{1}{2}[/itex]mv2 is the equation for kinetic energy, is this what you're looking for?

    M = mass and v= velocity, is this correct? Thank you!

    Indeed, good luck!

    And next time, try wikipedia, if you can avoid the more confusing stuff it can be helpful!
