bascially, i'm 100% sure i understod the wording of the question, below, can you please check though i confirm i interpretted right, thnx buddies(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the kinetic energy,Ejoules, of an object moving with a speedvm/s, is directly proportional tov^2.

the kinetic energy of the object is 15 480 joules when its speed is 6 m/s.

a) find a formula forEin terms ofv

2. Relevant equations

none

3. The attempt at a solution

Ev (proportional sign) v^2

Ev = kv^2

15480 x 6 = k x 6^2

92 880 = k x 36

k = 2580

Ev = 2580 x v^2

E = 2580v

thnx for the help
