Use the kinetic energy equation to explain why speed has a greater impact on kinetic energy than mass.​


  1. Answer: Hopefully this helps! sorry if not. :))

    Speed has a greater impact on mass because its increases in velocity have an exponentially greater impact on translational kinetic energy because kinetic energy is proportional to velocity squared. Doubling an object’s mass would only double its kinetic energy, however doubling its momentum would quadruple its velocity.
