The kinetic energy of an object of mass m,moving with a velocity of 5m/s is 25 J.What will be its kinetic energy when its velocity is doubled?What will be its kinetic energy when its velocity is increased three times?

Expert Answer:

the K.E(KINETIC ENERGY) of the object is 25 J.

So,

25=1/2*m*(5)2

Therefore,m=2 kg.

Now, when the velocity is doubled, velocity becomes=2*5=10 m/s(ms-1)

So,

K.E.=1/2*2*(10)=100 J.

Now,when the velocity is increased three times,the velocity will be=3*5=15m/s

Therefore,K.E.=1/2*2*(15)2 = 225 J.
