Starting with the definitions of momentum and kinetic energy, derive an equation for the kinetic energy of a particle expressed as a function of its momentum.

Step-by-step solution In this problem derive an equation for the kinetic energy of a particle expressed as a function of its momentum. Step 1 of 4 The expression of momentum is: Here p as m omentum, m a s mass, and v as velocity. Step 2 of 4 Take the square of both sides and get: Divide both sides with m and get:
