Open in App
Solution

The energy possed by a body when it is in motion is its kinetic energy.

kinetic energy of a body depends on its mass and its speed.

KE = 1/2(mv2)

where m = mass of the body

v = speed of the body

SI of kinetic energy is same as that of energy ie JOULS(j) and its derived unit is kg.m2 s-2
