The energy of a body due to its motion is called kinetic enerrgy

Every moving body posseses kinetic energy

**
Example 1
**

A ball kept at ground does not have kinetic enrgy

But a ball thrown at batsmen has kinetic energy

**
Example 2
**

A bullet kept in a gun does not have kietic energy

But a bullet fired from gun has kinetic energy

## How to measure kinetic energy of a moving body

It is the amount of work a body can do before coming to rest

Example

If we kick a football, it travels some distance before coming to a rest

Work done by football in travelling a distance before coming to rest is kinetic energy

In this case, when football is kicked,it has certain initial velocity u

When ball stops, its final velocity v becomes 0

## Formula for Calculating Kinetic Energy

The formula for Kinetic energy is

Kinetic Energy = 1/2 × Mass × Velocity^2

Kinetic Energy = 1/2 × mv^2

## How is this formula derived

To derive this formula, we use the relation between Kinetic Energy and Work Done

Kinetic Energy of a body moving with a certain velocity is equal to work done on it to acquire that velocity

Let's see its derivation

Note: While doing questions, we use

Change in Kinetic Energy = Work Done
