  1. Write down an equation to calculate the kinetic energy of a moving object. 
  2. What is the unit of kinetic energy?
  3. What is the unit of mass? 
  4. What is the unit of velocity? 
  5. Rearrange this equation so that mass and velocity are the subject of the equation. E.g. mass =, velocity =. The velocity one must include a square root. 
  6. Write down an equation to calculate the amount of elastic potential energy stored in a stretched spring.
