A 7.00-kg bowling ball moves at 3.00 m/s. How fast must a 2.45-g Ping-Pong ball move so that the two balls have the same kinetic energy?

To determine
The velocity of the ping-pong ball.

Explanation

Section1:

To determine: The kinetic energy of the bowling ball.

Answer: The kinetic energy of the bowling ball is 31.5J .

Explanation:

Given Info:

The mass of bowling ball is 7.00kg .

The velocity of the bowling ball is 3.0m/s .

Formula to calculate the kinetic energy of the bowling ball is,

KEbowlingball=12m1v12

• v1 is the velocity of the bowling ball
• m1 is the mass of bowling ball

Substitute 7.00kg for m1 and 3.0m/s for v1 to find the kinetic energy,

KEbowlingball=12(7.00kg)(3.0m/s)=31.5J

Thus, the kinetic energy of the bowling ball is 31
