Work and kinetic energy


Work = Force X Distance

When a force moves an object, energy is transferred and work is done.

work and energy are measured in joules (J). 

Kinetic Energy 

Energy of movement                                                                

Kinetic Energy = 1/2  X mass X Velovcity (squared) 

Kinetic Energy depends on both mass and speed the more it weighs and the faster it is going, the bigger the kinetic energy will be.
