Extension 1

You might have to convert some units now.

1000g = 1kg

So if you have a mass in g, you need to divide by 1000 to get to kg.

Now try these questions. The method is exactly the same, you just need to read what the mass and speed are in the text. Do the working in your book.

1) Lydia drives her car at a speed of 30m/s. If the combined mass of her and the car is

1000kg what is her kinetic energy?

2) Sam rides her bike at a speed of 10m/s. If the combined mass of Sam and her bike is

80kg what is her kinetic energy?

3) Josh is trying to catch a bus and is running at 3m/s. If he has a mass of 60kg how much kinetic energy does he have?

4) A 2000kg car is being driven at a speed of 10m/s. If it doubles its speed to 20m/s what happens to the car’s kinetic energy? a) HINT work out the kinetic energy at 10m/s b) Now work out the kinetic energy at 20m/s c) How much has it increased, has it
