Ex 1) A 60.0kg runner has 1920 joules of kinetic energy. What speed is her speed? 
Ex) A 60.0kg runner has 1920 joules of kinetic energy.
What is her speed ?
KE = (½)mv^{2} 
m = 60.0 kg
KE = 1920 J
V = ?
1920 J=(1/2)60.0kgV^{2}
1920 J = 30V^{2}
64.0 = V^{2}
V = 8.00 m/s
Summary W, K E, PE


Then ...
ΔPE = 40 J
