What is the Formula for Calculating Kinetic Energy?

Kinetic energy is a measure of the energy of motion of an object with a particular mass and velocity. The relationship between these two variables is used to calculate the kinetic energy of an obj... Read More »

Is fossil fuel a kinetic energy or a potential energy?

Fossil fuels, such as oil and coal, store potential energy until this energy is released through the process of combustion. When a fossil fuel is burned, energy is released in the form of heat.Sou... Read More »

Is nuclear energy a kinetic or potential energy?

Nuclear energy can be either kinetic or potential. A chunk of uranium has lots of potential nuclear energy: atoms that have not yet decayed. As the uranium undergoes radioactive decay, it gets hot.... Read More »

How do I Derive a 3D Formula for Distance?

Finding the distance between two points in three dimensions makes use of the Pythagorean theorem. The theorem states that the square of the "hypotenuse" (i.e. the square of the distance between the... Read More »
