# Calculation of kinetic power and energy.

## Principle

Kinetic energy is the energy associated with translational or rotational motion. Kinetic energy is a form of energy associated with the motion of a particle, single body, or system of objects moving together.

## Formula to calculate kinetic energy translational

How to calculate kinetic energy of a solid ?
The simplest formula is :

KE = 0.5*m*v²

Where :KE = kinetic energy (joules j)

m = mass in kilogram (kg)

v = speed of the object in meter per second (m/s)
