The chemical potential energy of a certain amount of gasoline is converted into kinetic energy in a truck that increases its speed from 0 mph to 30 mph. To pass another truck the driver accelerates from 30 mph to 60 mph. Compared to the energy required to go from 0 to 30 mph, the energy required to go from 30 to 60 mph is?

I say half as much?
