Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: Why does double the velocity double the momentum and quadruple the KE?« on: Today at 09:02:23 »
Quote from: Furious Cat
the KE and stopping distance go up exponentially, with speed!That is a square law = v2, not an exponential law = ev.
If U double the speed, U quadruple the KE and the stopping distance
- Exponentials grow much more quickly than square laws
- Exponentials also start of with a non-zero value when v=0
