    A 100000kg train has a kinetic energy of 28000000J how fast is the train going?

    Could you write the answer and solution please?

    Use the formula energy transferred = 1/2 x mass x velocity squared and rearrange

    Kinetic Energy = 0.5 * mass * velocity2
    1/2mv2 = 28000000J

    1/2*100000*v2 = 28000000J

    The answer would be 23.7 (1dp)
    Why?
    Well the formula for kinetic energy is:0.5 ×mass× velocity squared

    So to find the velocity you just rearrange the formula so it would be:

    The square root of 2× kinetic energy divided by the mass. In yout case it would be square root of 2 × 28000000 ÷100000.
    Hope it wasnt too confusing!
