# Kinetic Energy (Notes)

**Kinetic Energy = 1/2 mv²**

Any object that is moving has **Kinetic Energy **(**KE**). If an object is not moving, then it does not have any **KE**.

If there are two objects moving at the same speed, but one of them has a larger mass, then the one with the larger mass will have more **KE**.

If there are two other objects (Object A and B) of the same mass and Object A is moving two times faster than Object B, then Object A has four times the **KE **of B.
