__Kinetic Energy to Work Formula:__

Kinetic energy, often abbreviated as KE, is the energy an object possesses due to its motion.

In the context of work, the work done on an object is equal to the change in its kinetic energy, a principle derived from the work-energy theorem.

This theorem states that the work done by the net force acting on an object results in a corresponding change in its kinetic energy.

The concept is crucial in fields ranging from mechanical engineering to everyday phenomena like driving a car or playing sports.

When forces are applied to an object, they do work on it, changing its kinetic energy. This change can be an increase or decrease depending on the direction of the force relative to the motion.

Kinetic energy to work, W_{(J)} in joules is calculated by joules is calculated by the difference of intial kinetic energy, KE_{i(J)} in joules and final kinetic energy, KE_{f(J)} in joules.

Kinetic energy to work, W_{(J)} = KE_{f(J)} – KE_{i(J)}

W_{(J)} = work in joules, J.

KE_{f(J)} = final kinetic energy in joules, J.

KE_{i(J)} = initial kinetic energy in joules, J.

- A roller coaster car with a initial kinetic energy is 1000J and final kinetic energy is 121000J. Calculate the work done on the roller coaster car by the gravitational force as it moves down the hill.

Given: KE_{f(J)} = 121000J, KE_{i(J)} = 1000J.

Kinetic energy to work, W_{(J)} = KE_{f(J)} – KE_{i(J)}

W_{(J)} = 121000 – 1000

W_{(J)} = 120,000J.

- A hockey puck of final kinetic energy is 0J and work done is -10J. Calculate the initial kinetic energy on the hockey puck.

Given: KE_{f(J)} = 121000J, W_{(J)} = -10J.

Kinetic energy to work, W_{(J)} = KE_{f(J)} – KE_{i(J)}

KE_{i(J)} = KE_{f(J)} – W_{(J)}

KE_{i(J)} = 0 + 10

KE_{i(J)} = 10J.
