1. E = mv (2 squared)

work out the value of E when m = 3 and v = 10
E = mv (2 squared)

work out the value of E when m = 3 and v = 10
Do you mean (2 squared) as in E=mv^2

Do you mean (2 squared) as in E=mv^2
If you do, using BIDMAS E=300 since 10^2 is 100, 100 x 3 = 300
E = mv (2 squared)

work out the value of E when m = 3 and v = 10
which one?

Its the second one, so you write it like ^2.
