Came across this question in the textbook but need help answering it:
derive an equation for kinetic energy in terms of speed v, weight of an object W,and acceleration of free fall g

any help is much appreciated

Well, Ke= 1/2 x mass x speed^2
Weight=mass x gravity
Maybe you could do something with this, I’m not entirely sure how to do it.
Is this gcse or a level ?

so you can say m = W/g

then replace m with W/g in the formula for kinetic energy.

what would velocity be then? i understand how mass is derived now

you mentioned speed in the first post. that will be the velocity.
