Enter the mass and velocity into the calculator to determine the increase in kinetic energy of an object. This calculator helps in understanding how the kinetic energy of an object changes with its velocity.

## Energy Increase Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the increase in kinetic energy:

ΔKE = 0.5 * m * v^2

Variables:

• ΔKE is the increase in kinetic energy (Joules)
• m is the mass of the object (kilograms)
• v is the velocity of the object (meters per second)

To calculate the increase in kinetic energy, multiply half of the mass of the object by the square of its velocity.

## What is Kinetic Energy?

Kinetic energy is the energy that an object possesses due to its motion. It is directly proportional to the mass of the object and the square of its velocity. When an object’s velocity increases, its kinetic energy increases as well, and this calculator measures that increase.

## How to Calculate Energy Increase?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Energy Increase.

1. First, determine the mass of the object (m) in kilograms.
2. Next, determine the velocity of the object (v) in meters per second.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = ΔKE = 0.5 * m * v^2.
4. Finally, calculate the Energy Increase (ΔKE) in Joules.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

mass of the object (m) = 2 kg

velocity of the object (v) = 10 m/s
