4.how does the kinectic energy of a 10,000-kg train traveling at a speed of 10 m/s compare with that of a 2,600-kg compact car traveling twice as fast?

A.the train has less kinectic energy than the car.

B.the train has more kinectic energy than the car.(I PICK THIS)

C.the train has the same kinectic energy as the car.

2. Oh sorry, slightly different, train going v
for train
(1/2) m v^2 = 5,000 * 10^2

for car

(1/2) m v^2 = 1300 * 4 * 10^2
= 5,200 * 10^2

so now it is the car number A
