### Definitions:

Kinetic Energy:

Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. Energy is defined as the ability or capacity to perform work.

The SI unit of kinetic energy is the joule.

Mass:

The quantity of matter in an object is known as mass. The greater the mass an object possesses the more kinetic energy it holds. Kinetic energy is directly proportional to mass.

The kilogram is the SI unit of mass.

Velocity:

Velocity is the rate of position change for an object. Kinetic energy is exponentially proportional to velocity.
