Field Kinetic Energy

This theory was an example of what I want to apply to my project the reason for this is because the motions in which is performed when using the walking stick can use kinetic energy the vertical motion applied to the walking stick and repetition of movement created which could be a source of energy in which can be used for my design.

Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. An object that has motion – whether it is vertical or horizontal motion – has kinetic energy. There are many forms of kinetic energy – vibrational (the energy due to vibrational motion), rotational (the energy due to rotational motion), and translational (the energy due to motion from one location to another). To keep matters simple, we will focus upon translational kinetic energy. The amount of translational kinetic energy (from here on, the phrase kinetic energy will refer to translational kinetic energy) that an object has depends upon two variables: the mass (m) of the object and the speed (v) of the object. The following equation is used to represent the kinetic energy (KE) of an object

KE = 0.5 • m • v2

where m = mass of object

v = speed of object

Example of products that use kinetic energy in there products :
