    Mass (m) = 62kg

    Speed (v) = 8.2m/sec

    Kinetic energy (K.E) = ?

    We know that:-

    Kinetic Energy (K.E) = ½mv²

    = ½ x 62kg x (8.2m/sec)²

    = 2084.44J

    ≈ 2084 J

    ∴ Kinetic Energy (K.E) = 2084J

    Ek = 1/2 m v^2  and you should note that v^2 is just v * v

    so can you multiply 1/2 * 62 * 8.2 * 8.2  J?  Really?  Somehow I am dismayed at the question. Substituting numbers is easy and isn't physics.  I may be judgmental if I feel that is the best way of helping you to be better.  If you don't like my advice then you are in deep trouble.

      As mentioned above, there isn't much here to understand. Either you learn your work or you don't. You should have learned this formula somewhere.

    KE = 1/2 * mass * speed^2

    Substitute and solve, easy calc.

    Kinetic Energy in J if m is in kg and V is in m/s

    KE = ½mV²

    KE = ½62•8.2² = ____ J

    you have a calculator....
