Question A small car is traveling at a speed of 60 mph on the highway. In the next lane, a large passenger bus is traveling at the same speed.

Answer: A. The bus has more kinetic energy than the car. Explanation: As we know that Kinetic energy is the amount of energy possessed by the body at the time when it is in motion. Also, Kinetic energy = 1 ÷ 2mv² Here m denotes the mass of the body and v denotes the velocity of the body. So it would be based on the mass & velocity of the body As if the passenger bus contains more kinetic energy as compared to the car because of the big mass Hence, the first option is correct Log in to Reply

Answer:A. The bus has more kinetic energy than the car.

Explanation:As we know that

Kinetic energy is the amount of energy possessed by the body at the time when it is in motion.

Also,

Kinetic energy = 1 ÷ 2mv²

Here m denotes the mass of the body

and v denotes the velocity of the body.

So it would be based on the mass & velocity of the body

As if the passenger bus contains more kinetic energy as compared to the car because of the big mass

Hence, the first option is correct
