What is translational motion ?
If an object
is as small as a point ( it has only one dimension ), it always has
As for other objects, they have a translational motion if each of their
- move at the same speed.
- move in the same direction.
For simplification we can say that an object has a translational motion
if it doesn't rotate.
kinetic energy formula
kinetic energy ( KE ) depends on speed ( v ) and mass ( m ) of the
It can be expressed by the following relationship:
x m x v2
m in kilogram (kg)
v in meter per second (m/s)
- Ec in
