Kinetic energy is energy of motion.

Objects that are moving also have the ability to cause change. Kinetic energy can easily be transfered into potential energy - The kinetic energy of a basketball tossed upward converts into potential energy as the height increases. Also, the amount of kinetic energy an object has equals the amount of work the object can be exerting force as it stops. Kinetic energy is related to the object's mass and speed.

The equation used to calculate an object's kinetic energy is listed at right:
