The kinetic energy in joules, of a moving object is found by using the formula E=1/2mv(squared), where m is the mass and v is the speed of the object. The mass of a car is 1.59 x 10(to the third)kg. The car is traveling at 2.7 x 10 (1) m/s. What is the kinetic energy of the car?
Seriously? Are you kidding me? They expect an 8th grader to get that problem? They expect a mom to get it too? Max and I are stumped. Oh I really did get this stuff at one point in my life. Any great mathematicians out there? (Max is hoping...)
