energy PE KE MEKinetic energy, abbreviated as KE, is the energy an object possesses by virtue of its motion.  If it moves, it has kinetic energy.

 

Kinetic energy formula

\(\large{ KE = \frac{1}{2} \;  m \; v^2  }\)

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ KE }\) = kinetic energy \(\large{ lbf-ft }\) \(\large{J}\) 
\(\large{ m }\) = mass \(\large{lbm}\) \(\large{kg}\)
\(\large{ v }\) = velocity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
