The kinetic energy of an object can be calculated using the formula:

Kinetic energy = (1/2) * mass * velocity^2

In freefall near the Earth's surface, the velocity of an object is approximately equal to the acceleration due to gravity multiplied by the time in freefall. The acceleration due to gravity is approximately 9.8 m/s^2.

So, the velocity of the object after 1 second of freefall is:

velocity = gravity * time velocity = 9.8 m/s^2 * 1 s velocity = 9.8 m/s

Now, substitute the mass and velocity into the kinetic energy formula:

Kinetic energy = (1/2) * 1 kg * (9.8 m/s)^2 Kinetic energy = (1/2) * 1 kg * 96.04 m^2/s^2 Kinetic energy ≈ 48.02 Joules

Therefore, the kinetic energy of the object after 1 second of freefall is approximately 48.02 Joules.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- An object with a mass of #3 kg# is hanging from an axle with a radius of #3 cm#. If the wheel attached to the axle has a radius of #44 cm#, how much work would it take to turn the wheel a length equal to the circumference of the axle?
- What is the gravitational potential energy of a # 9 kg# object on a shelf # 5/6 m # high?
- A ball with a mass of #450 g# is projected vertically by a spring loaded contraption. The spring in the contraption has a spring constant of #36 (kg)/s^2# and was compressed by #9/8 m# when the ball was released. How high will the ball go?
- If a spring has a constant of #4 (kg)/s^2#, how much work will it take to extend the spring by #41 cm #?
