    A horse of weight 6000N gallops at a speed of 16 m/s. Taking the acceleration of free fall
    as 10m/s^2
    , calculate the kinetic energy of the horse. (Give your answer in kJ.)

    Down Accepted answer

    let׳s see what we can get from the question׳s details.

    the horse weights 6000N and we know that Mass X g = Weight, so the horse weights 600kg.

    its velocity is 16m/s

    kinetic energy is 1/2mv^2

    so 1/2 times 600 times 16^2

    is 76800 jouls. we need to give our answer is Kj so let’s divide by 1000 to get 76.8
