Kinetic energy is the energy of motion, observable as the movement of an object, particle, or set of particles. Some examples of Kinetic Energy are:
- A truck moving down the road has more kinetic energy than a car travelling at the same speed because the truck’s mass is much more than the car’s.
- A river flowing at a definite speed comprises kinetic energy as water has certain velocity and mass.
- As the heating components inside the toaster get more heated, they emit radiant energy that heats and toasts the bread.
- A bullet flying through the air is literally moving. This energy is then transferred to the object the bullet hits in the form of damage.
