Kinetic Energy

The kinetic energy of an object depends on two factors:

  • Mass

  • Speed

Video tutorials explain the new physics content you need to understand for GCSE.

These videos cover all aspects of the course and are suitable for students of all abilities.

A brief description of the topic is also included beneath each video.

This first example looks at calculating the kinetic energy stored in a moving object.

There are example questions for you to have a go at to check your understanding.


Once you have worked out your solution you can watch the video to check your answer.
