## How much kinetic energy does an object possess?

The amount of kinetic energy an object possesses depends on two factors: 1. Mass of the object The greater the mass of the object, the greater the amount of kinetic energy possessed by the object. (Example: A heavier truck travelling at 60km/h possesses more kinetic energy than a lighter car travelling at 60km/h.) 2. Speed Of The Object

## What is kinetic energy?

Match Gravity Created by lbrywka Terms in this set (20) What is kinetic energy? energy of moving things A waterfall is an example of: potential energy being converted into kinetic energy

## What factor should students be focusing on when calculating kinetic energy?

By keeping the speed of the cars the same and varying the number of people in the car, the question is testing students on their understanding of the factors affecting kinetic energy. As the speed of all 3 cars is the same, the factor students should be focusing on is the different masses of the cars.

## Where do skaters get the most kinetic energy?

When skaters are at the tops of the ramps, they have the highest amount of potential energy. Kinetic energy is energy of motion. The faster skaters move, the more kinetic energy they have.

## What happens to kinetic energy as a skater moves up a hill?

The faster the skater, the greater the kinetic energy. As the skater moves up the hill, the KE is transformed into PE. The total energy stays the same throughout the entire motion. Energy is neither created nor destroyed only transformed back and forth between KE and PE.

## What is the principle of conservation of energy?

This principle states that energy cannot be added or subtracted from the original energy of a system. Energy can, however, be transformed, between forms.

## What is potential energy?

Potential energy is stored energy that is related to height. When skaters are at the tops of the ramps, they have the highest amount of potential energy. Kinetic energy is energy of motion. The faster skaters move, the more kinetic energy they have.

## What is the purpose of energy skate park simulation?

Purpose – The purpose of the energy skate park simulation is to see how energy gets transferred in a real world application. In this simulation you will manipulate the skater and track to determine how it affects the energy of the system. In our skate park, there is no friction until part C, so you will not be dealing with that factor.

Questions in examinations typically test students on their understanding and application of the factors affecting Gravitational Potential Energy and the Conversion of Energy. As a result, they may not be very familiar with the factors affecting Kinetic Energy.

## What Is Kinetic Energy & What Are The Factors Affecting It?

Kinetic Energy is energy an object possesses due to its motion. The amount of kinetic energy an object possesses depends on two factors:

## Now consider this question

What about a 1500kg truck travelling at 70km/h and a 180kg car travelling at 120km/h?

## Question

In this question, there are a total of 3 roller coaster cars moving on the track and each car has a different number of adults sitting in it.
