Kinetic energy (related to object's momentum)


In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion. It is the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity. Having gained this energy during its acceleration, the body maintains this kinetic energy unless its speed changes. The same amount of work is done by the body in decelerating from its current speed to a state of rest.
The kinetic energy of an object is related to its momentum and its mass.
