- What do you think now?
- Summary

- What is kinetic energy?
- What is the equation?

- The energy an object has because of its motion.

- The two eggs were dropped from the same height. Which had more kinetic energy?

- Since both eggs had approximately the same mass and same relative velocity, they about the same kinetic energy.

- How was the egg able to stop?
- How do you measure the distance in each egg drop?

- The surface had to apply a force over some distance.
- When the egg was dropped in flour, you can measure the indentation. With the hard surface, you cannot see the indentation.

- How do auto brakes work?

- The braking system has to eliminate the kinetic energy of the vehicle by applying a large force over a large distance.

- How do you calculate work?
- How does work relate to kinetic energy?

- W=F·D
- Work is the change in kinetic energy. We can write this as

- How does this apply to the eggs?

- When the egg could be stopped over a greater distance, there was less damage to it because less force had to be applied.

- How does this apply to a car crash?

- Airbags! These allow you to have more distance to stop your body so you will be less likely to get hurt.

- If you are traveling three-times the speed, will you need three times the braking distance?

- False! You will need 9 times the stopping distance. This is because in the formula, the velocity is squared

- Why is it harder to stop on icy or wet roads?

- The slippery surface makes it more difficult to supply a sufficient force, so it is necessary to give yourself more distance.

- What else helps stop an automobile?

- The crumple zone of a car allows the car to have more distance to stop. This is why cars are designed to dent and are not made out of more sturdy material.
