    Answer:

    Because it has more mass

    Explanation:

    To understand this, think about the equation of kinetic energy

    KE = [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] m [tex]v^{2}[/tex]

    Kinetic energy depends on both the velocity (v) as well as the mass (m).

    Because a lorry is bigger and heavier than a car, it will have more mass. With more mass, at the same velocity the lorry with have more kinetic energy.
