Using this formula to calculate kinetic energy, with automatic unit conversion:

`(Kinetic Energy = 0.5 * mass in kg * (meters per second ^ 2)).`

Muzzle energy is not always easy to handle. |

For a constant velocity, if the mass is doubled, the energy is doubled.

For a constant mass, if the velocity is doubled, the muzzle energy increases four times.

Pound-Foot (lb-ft) and Foot-Pound (ft-lb), are NOT interchangeable / NOT the same!

The "POUND-FOOT" (lb-ft) (TORQUE/lever-energy) is a unit of torque and a vector measurement that is created by:

The "FOOT-POUND" (ft-lb) (ENERGY/linear-energy) is a scalar unit and measurement of work required to:
