# A hockey puck with a mass of 160 g flies at a speed of 20 m / s. What is its kinetic energy?

September 20, 2021 | education

| Data: m (mass of the flying washer) = 160 g (0.16 kg); V (puck speed in flight) = 20 m / s.

The kinetic energy of the washer will be equal to half the product of its mass and the square of the speed of movement: Ek = 0.5 * m * V².

Calculation: Ek = 0.5 * 0.16 * 20² = 32 J.

Answer: The kinetic energy of a hockey puck is 32 J.
