what is the mass of mr. thomson’s prius if his kinetic energy is 641300 J when he is driving at a velocity of 22 meters per second on the highway? please show work

Answer:

Mass, m = 2650 kg

Explanation:

We have,

Kinetic energy of Mr. Thomson’s prius is 641300 J

He is moving with a velocity of 22 m/s

It is required to find the mass of Mr. Thomson’s prius.

Answer:Mass, m = 2650 kg

Explanation:We have,

Kinetic energy of Mr. Thomson’s prius is 641300 J

He is moving with a velocity of 22 m/s

It is required to find the mass of Mr. Thomson’s prius.

Kinetic energy,

[tex]K=\dfrac{1}{2}mv^2[/tex]

Plugging all the values, we get :

[tex]m=\dfrac{2K}{v^2}\\\\m=\dfrac{2\times 641300}{(22)^2}\\\\m=2650\ kg[/tex]

So, the mass of Mr. Thomson’s prius is 2650 kg.
