Question #96723

The kinetic energy of a mass is given by ½MV² of its speed is doubled by what factor does the energy change

Expert's answer

The kinetic energy

If the speed of mass is doubled, then

@$K'=\frac{Mv'^2}{2}=\frac{M(2v)^2}{2}=4\times\frac{Mv^2}{2}=4K@$

So, kinetic energy increases by factor 4.
