Quote from: Furious Cat

the KE and stopping distance go up exponentially, with speed!That is a square law = v

If U double the speed, U quadruple the KE and the stopping distance

^{2}, not an exponential law = e

^{v}.

- Exponentials grow much more quickly than square laws

- Exponentials also start of with a non-zero value when v=0
