Given,

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.

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....
