Kinetic energy is a very important type of energy that is used in different calculations and systems. To use in these calculations, we created a kinetic energy calculator that you can easily use for the users.
Kinetic Energy Calculator
The use of the kinetic energy calculator is very simple. You just need to enter the velocity of the object and the mass of the object inside the brackets. Then click on the ‘Calculate’ button to calculate kinetic energy. If you want to make another kinetic energy calculation, click on the ‘Reset’ button and re-enter the required values.
What is Kinetic Energy?
Kinetic energy is a form of energy that is calculated according to the velocity of the object. The velocity is a relative value that is calculated according to a reference point. For example, in most of the kinetic energy calculations, kinetic energy is calculated according to the earth. Earth’s velocity is considered as 0. And the velocities of the objects are calculated according to this absolute 0 point.
The kinetic energy is calculated with the formulation of;
In this formula, ‘v’ is the velocity of the object that has the unit of m/s or ft/s. ‘m’ is the mass of the object which has the unit of kg or lbs. According to the kinetic energy formula, kinetic energy is directly proportional to the mass of the object and directly proportional to the square of the velocity.
The hydroelectric energy plants are a very important example where kinetic energy conversion of the flowing fluid is used. The fluid flows from the higher elevations which have higher potential energy. At the lower elevation, this potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. With turbines, this kinetic energy of the flowing fluid is converted into rotational mechanical energy. This mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy with the generators.
The general aspects of the kinetic energy and kinetic energy calculator can be explained as above.
