    Hello. Well I've come across a question which I didn't know how to do, I looked at the markscheme and it used this formula to do the question
    (Ek = mv2/2) could you please explain me in detail why would you use this and maybe direct me to some example questions so I could get some practice done before the exam. Thank you!

    Ek is Kinetic Energy

    mv2/2 is 1/2 mv2

    it's just E=1/2 mv2 which you should be familiar with.
