# kinetic energy of the cricket

It takes 4.186 of energy to raise the temperature of 1.00 of water by 1.00 degree.

How fast would a 2.00 kg cricket have to jump to have that much kinetic energy?

How fast would a 4.00 kg cricket have to jump to have the same amount of kinetic energy?

v = ? m/s

#### Solution Preview

The kinetic energy is KE = 0.5mv^2 = 4.186 J ( i took you mean by 4.186 J of energy to raise the temperature of 1.00 ...

#### Solution Summary

It finds the jumping velocity of the cricket given its kinetic energy.
