Product Description

A **4-page worksheet** that covers **kinetic energy calculations (KE=1/2MV2)** through a set of **8 word problems**.

**Page 1** provides a **summary of kinetic energy (KE)**, including its definition, how KE can change depending on an object’s mass and velocity, and the KE equation (KE=1/2mv2). The summary also includes the proper **formula triangle for KE** and describes how to use it to solve for the 3 different variables: KE, M, and V. Finally, the summary lists the **4 elements of a correct solution**, including (1) the correct formula, (2) correct rough work, (3) correct answer rounded to the proper significant figures, and (4) correct units.

**Pages 1-2** feature **8 leveled word problems** that require students to solve for each of the 3 variables. In addition, Page 2 contains 4 word problems that are different than the previous 4. In these problems, the kinetic energy of 2 objects (for example, a car and a housefly) is set to be the same; students must use their knowledge of the KE equation to solve for 1 missing variable.

**Pages 3-4** feature a **full color-coded answer key** that can be used by the teacher alone, displayed to students on a screen/interactive white board, or handed out to students who have completed the document.

**Contents:**

- Review of kinetic energy, including types of motion

- Review of the KE equation (KE = 1/2mv2)

- Use of a formula triangle to solve for each variable (KE, M, and V)

- 4 features of a complete solution

- 8 leveled word problems (all designed to use significant figures)

- Full color-coded answer key

**NOTE: Significant Figures Included! **

All problems are designed to involve correct**significant figures** and have corresponding answer keys that also include “sig figs”. Feel free to modify the document if this is not part of your curriculum!

**Downloadable in 2 Formats!**
