Here is the problem:
Give the multiplicative constant for the kinetic, potential, thermal, and magic energy terms of the equation Total Energy (J)=E(kinetic)+E(potential)+E(thermal)+E… such that total energy has the units of Joules. Assume that KE=1/2mv^2, PE=mgh, TE= number, and magic energy= Obamacoefficient*pressure*volume.
1. KE: chains, slugs, jiffy, PE= chains, slugs, jiffy, TE: TNT equivalent, ME:jigger shotglass, PSI
There are 3 questions. However, if you can help me do one. I'm not understanding the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[KE=mv^2/2\]I suppose the kinetic energy coefficient is 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is not even physics. Its more like useless unit conversion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because mv^2 already has the dimensions of energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of the units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't relate it to each other. Yes, they all have dimensions of energy. However, he wants you to find a coefficient so that if you're given the units in #1, you can just multiply them and get joules.
