A particle moves in a straight line with retardation proportional to its displacement. Its loss of kinetic energy for any displacement  x is proportional to :

A particle is acted upon by a force of constant magnitude which is always perpendicular to the velocity of the particle, the motion of the particle takes place in a plane. It follows that :

Kinetic energy
  •  Mechanical Energy-

                 Mechanical energy is the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy. It is the energy associated with the motion and

                 position of an object.


  • Kinetic energy

                 The energy possessed by a body by virtue of its motion is called kinetic energy.

                 E.g-Moving vehicle possesses kinetic energy.


  1. The expression for kinetic energy             

                       K.E. = \frac{1}{2}mv^{2}

           Where m\rightarrow mass

                        v\rightarrow velocity 


       2. Kinetic Energy is always positive.

  1.  Kinetic energy depends on the frame of reference -

      The kinetic energy of a person of mass m, sitting in a bus moving with speed v, is zero in the frame of the bus but it is equal to   \frac{1}{2}mv^{2} in the frame of the earth.

       4. Work-energy theorem-

           Net work done by all the forces acting on a particle is equal to change in its kinetic energy. 


                          W= k_{f}-k_{i}

                          Where m=mass \: of\: the\: body

                                      v_{0}= initial\: velocity

                                       v= final\: velocity

                         This theorem is valid for a system in the presence of all types of forces (external or internal, conservative or non-                                          conservative).

       5. Relation of kinetic energy with linear momentum

                               k= \frac{mv^{2}}{2}  ….. (1)

           and, P = mv or  v=p/m ….. (2)

           put this value of v in equation (1)

           Put we get   k= \frac{p^{2}}{2m}

                   Where p\rightarrow momentum

                              m\rightarrow mass
