Do you remember the formula?

i thiink so 1/2 times mass times (velocity squared) 12mv2

he equation for finding Kinetic Energy KE is half the mass m times velocity v squared. KE=12mv2

correct! so since$K _{E}=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }mv ^{2}$ then, $\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \times 1.0kg \times 5.0 ms ^{-1}$ $=12.5 J$ So, the answer is D.
