## Study Notes

### Kinetic Energy

• Kinetic energy (KE) formula: KE = 1/2 mv²
• Example: A 2.1 kg volleyball moving at 30 m/s has 945 Joules of kinetic energy.
• Example: A car with a mass of 1120 kg traveling at 40 m/s has kinetic energy of 896,000 Joules.
• Example: A 1.0 kg ball thrown at 30 m/s has 450 Joules of kinetic energy.

### Potential Energy

• Potential energy (PE) formula: PE = mgh (mass x gravity x height)
• Example: A 12 kg baby carriage at a height of 21 m has 2,469.6 Joules of potential energy.
• Example: A 79 kg cinderblock on a platform 20 m high has 15,484 Joules of potential energy.
• Example: A 190 kg bell at 45 m high has 83,790 Joules of potential energy.
• Example: A 966 kg roller coaster at 72 m high has 681,609.6 Joules of potential energy.

### Calculating Height and Speed

• If potential energy is 1000 J and mass is 60 kg, height is calculated as:
• h = PE / (mg) => h = 1000 / (9.8 x 60) => h ≈ 1.7 m
• At the bottom of the hill, the speed is calculated as:
• Velocity = √(2 x KE / m) => Velocity ≈ 1.699 m/s

### Bonus Problem

• A ball thrown into the air with a mass of 1.0 kg and an initial velocity of 30 m/s has:
• A kinetic energy of 450 J at launch.
• Potential energy of 450 J when it reaches the peak height, calculated height approximately 45.9 m.

### Kinetic Energy of a Boat

• A 2000 kg boat moving at 5.0 m/s has a kinetic energy of 25,000 Joules.

### Graph Analysis

• The ball has the greatest kinetic energy at point D.
• Maximum potential energy occurs at point A.
• Least potential energy is observed at point D.
• The ball is slower at point G due to energy loss caused by gravity or friction, preventing it from climbing back to its original height.
