a car moves 4 times as fast as another identical car. compared to the slower car the faster car has

16 times the kinetic energy

if you find that twice as much work is needed to perform a task but it takes as much time, the amount of power required is

unchanged

a 1000-kg car and a 200-kg car are hoisted the same distance. raising the more massive car requires

twice as much work
