How can be proved that the kinetic energy is equal to (m*v^2)/2 In high school or university books ,there were not any proof for kinetic energy and only it was explain in such a way that this formula was an experienced try of man

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to the History of Science and Mathematics site. Unfortunately, your question is not clear. Please reword your question so we can understand it. What do you mean by "there were not any proof for kinetic energy" and "as an experienced try of man"? Also, your question does not seem to be about history at all, just about how to explain a scientific principle. Please change your question to be about history. $\endgroup$ – Rory Daulton May 15 at 10:14

    $\begingroup$ "In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion. It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity." $\endgroup$ – Mauro ALLEGRANZA May 15 at 11:31
