Car #1 has twice the mass of car #2, but they both have the same kinetic energy. How do their speeds compare? 1) 2 v1 = v2 2) √ 2 v1 = v2 3) 4 v1 = v2 4) v1 = v2 5) v1 = √ 2 v2 Since the kinetic energy is 1/2 mv2, and the mass of car #1 is mv greater, then car #2 must be moving faster. If the ratio of m1/m2 is 2, then the ratio of v2 values must also be 2 This means that 2. the ratio of v2/v1 must be the square root of 2 2. ConcepTest ConcepTest 6.2 Free Fall

Which takes more energy, the 0→30 mph, or the 30→60 mph? 1) 0 → 30 mph 2) 30 → 60 mph 30 3) both the same The change in KE (1/2 mv2 ) involves the velocity squared. velocity So in the first case, we have: 1/2 m (302  02) = 1/2 m (900) 1/2 In the second case, we have: 1/2 m (602  302) = 1/2 m (2700) 1/2 Thus, the bigger energy change occurs in the second case case.
