Everything that moves has kinetic energy. The wind causing things such as leaves and branches to move and moving water are two examples of kinetic energy for kids. More »

A bullet fired from a gun is an example of mechanical kinetic energy, while the gunpowder before firing is an example of chemical potential energy. Kinetic energy is the energy of a particle or wave in motion, while pote... More »

Kinetic energy is used by exploiting the motion of an object. For example, the energy of a moving piston in an automotive engine provides transportation. The kinetic energy of moving water powers hydroelectric dams that ... More »

The advantages of kinetic energy include the ability to produce renewable energy, the availability of being an abundant resource and the effectiveness of being exponentially proportional to its velocity, as detailed by t... More »

Temperature is directly proportional to the average kinetic energy of the molecules in a substance. If the degree of motion of the molecules inside an object doubles, the temperature will also double. More »

The following formula is used to determine rotational kinetic energy: 1/2(Iw^2). This equation is similar to the one used to determine kinetic energy in linear form, which is 1/2mv^2. More »
