Answer:

1600J

Explanation:

1 mole of oxygen gas (O2) has a mass of 32g i.e. the molar mass = 32g/mol

Kinetic energy (K.E) = ½ × m × v²

Where;

m = mass (g)

v = speed or velocity (m/s)

From the information given in this question;

m = 32g

V = 10m/s²

K.E = ½ × 32 × 10²

K.E = 16 × 100

K.E = 1600J
