# Kinetic Energy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Kinematics

Kinetic energy, abbreviated as KE, is the energy in moving objects or mass.  If it moves, it has kinetic energy.

### Kinetic Energy formula

$$\large{ KE = \frac {1}{2} \; m \; v^2 }$$

$$\large{ KE = \frac {P^2}{2 \; m} }$$

Where:

$$\large{ KE }$$ = kinetic energy

$$\large{ m }$$ = mass

$$\large{ P }$$ = power

$$\large{ v }$$ = velocity
