# Which is an example of kinetic energy?

The

**kinetic energy**of an object depends on both its mass and velocity, with its velocity playing a much greater role.**Examples of Kinetic Energy**: An airplane has a large amount of**kinetic energy**in flight due to its large mass and fast velocity. 2.A.

### What is increasing kinetic energy?

**Increasing**Translational

**Kinetic Energy**. Because the translational

**kinetic energy**formula consists of only two variables, mass and velocity,

**increasing**one of those properties is the only way to

**increase**an object's translational

**kinetic energy**.

**Increases**to mass and velocity, however, do not have the same impact.

#### What are some examples of kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy is the energy of**motion**, observable as the**movement**of an**object**, particle, or set of particles. Any**object**in**motion**is using kinetic energy: a person**walking**, a thrown baseball, a crumb falling from a table, and a charged particle in an electric field are all examples of kinetic energy at work.#### How do you find the kinetic energy?

**Calculating Kinetic Energy**. Write the**equation**. The**formula**for**calculating kinetic energy**(KE) is KE = 0.5 x mv^{2}. Here m stands for mass, the measure of how much matter is in an object, and v stands for velocity of the object, or the rate at which the object changes its position.#### What happens when a sample of matter when its particles lose kinetic energy?

**What happens to a sample of matter when its particles lose kinetic energy**? Compare the amount of hear transferred from the hot water and the amount of heat transferred to the cold water. They are the same but the hot is negative and the cold is positive.
