1/2mv^2

you do this simple math and you get an number that is in KE units , Joules.

so, why is the KE unit equation, 1 Joule = Kg x (m^2/s^2) ??

1Kg traveling at 1m/s would have a KE of 1Joule, but using the KE equation, it would be 1/2 a Joule.

why is that. I can't explain it to someone asking me. (forgot the basis! ;)
