# Kinetic Energy

###### What is it ?

Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by a moving object. It is directly related to its speed and mass, and can be calculated using the following formula:

Kinetic energy = 1/2 * mass * velocity^2

The heavier an object is and the faster it moves, the more kinetic energy it has.

An example of kinetic energy is the movement of a soccer ball kicked by a player. When the ball is kicked, it acquires kinetic energy due to the force exerted by the player's foot, which gives it high speed. The higher the speed of the ball, the more kinetic energy it has.
