Thermodynamics: Kinetic Energy

Kinetic energy is the energy of a system that relates the mass of a system to the velocity of a system. There are two types of kinetic energy that need to be considered. They are transverse kinetic energy and rotational kinetic energy. Transverse kinetic energy is represented by equation 1, while rotational kinetic energy is represented by equation 2.

Translational Kinetic Energy Equation (1)

m = mass

v = velocity


Rotational Kinetic Energy Equation (2)
