It’s time for some physics!
The equation to figure out kinetic energy is KE = 1/2mv^2
KE = Kinetic Energy, M = Mass (in kilograms) and v = velocity or speed (in meters per second)
First, we have to do a few unit conversions.
3500 pounds = 1,587.5733 Kilograms – that’s our mass.
100 mph = 44.704 meters per second – that’s our acceleration.
So our equation looks like this
KE = 1/2(1,587.5733 kg)(44.704 m/s)^2
after a little math we get
KE = 1,586,341.0308 kgm^2/s^2
Converting this, we get about 1.586 megajoules, or 440.7 Wh
