 Question 283889: This is what I have so far - K=kmv^2 4500=k(90)(20)^2=36000/4500=8. I'm not sure if this means 1/8 therefore making K=1/8(90)(32)^2=92160/8(?) = 11520 K=11520 Joules ??? The actual problem is below.Any help is so appreciated. Kevin Problem: The kinetic Energy (K) of a moving object varies jointly with its mass (m) and the square of its velocity (v). If an object weighing 90 kilograms and moving with a velocity of 20 meters per second has a kinetic energy of 4500 Joules, find its kinetic energy when the velocity is 32 meters per second.

 Question 285592: I think I chose the right category.. not sure though. I need help with this question: One measure of form for a runner is stride rate, defined as the number of steps per second. A runner is considered to be efficient if the stride rate is close to optimum. The stride rate is related to speed; the greater the speed, the greater the stride rate. In a study of 21 top female runners, researchers measured the stride rate for different speeds. The following table gives the average stride rate of these women versus the speed. Speed: 15.86 16.88 17.50 18.62 19.97 21.06 22.11 Stride Rate: 3.05 3.12 3.17 3.25 3.36 3.46 3.55 (the speed and stride rate go together so you can graph them, so like number 1 in the speed and number 1 in the stride rate etc..) a. Using Graphit, TI83/84 or EXCEL, plot the data on a scatter-plot. Be sure to include a title, scale and a label for each axis. b. Identify the function that you feel best fits the data. Explain how you decided on the function to use. c. Make a prediction of the stride rate if the speed is 19 feet per second. Show, or explain how you determined your answer.
