Let W1 represent the work required to accelerate an object on a frictionless horizontal surface from rest to a speed of v. if W2 represents the work required to accelerate the same object on the same surface from a speed of v to 2v, then which one of the following is the correct relationship between W1 and W2?
a) W2=W1 b) W2=2W1 c) W2=3W1 d) w2= 4W1 e) W2=5W1
c) The kinetic energy change is
W2 = (3/2) m v^2
= 3 W1
