(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

(a) A particle of mass m moves with momentum of magnitude p. Show that the kinetic energy of the particle is given by K=p[itex]^{2}[/itex]/2m. (b) Express the magnitude of the particle's momentum in terms of its kinetic energy and mass.

2. Relevant equations

Would the p=mv be needed?

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to get it started. I think I can get it if I can get it started.

Thank you.
